    Hello all to my Suikoden III FAQ. It may not be good, but I'll try my best
    to make it decent. This is my second FAQ so this one might suck. Sorry about
    that! Feel free to send viruses, complaints, comments, and etc. to
    duracell.bunny@gmail.com
    
    I wrote a FAQ for this game because I was bored, and really liked the game.Now,
    about the game. Suikoden III has this very cool thing called the Trinity Site
    System which allows you to play the game from three different view points. I
    recommend that you play the game like this because that is how I wrote the
    FAQ: Chris's Chapters 1-3, Hugo's Chapters 1-3, Geddoe's Chapters 1-3, and
    finally, Thomas's Chapters 1-2. Chris's, Hugo's, and Geddoe's Chapters are
    all long while Thomas's chapters are really short. The only good thing about
    Thomas's POV is that they show how Budehuc Castle was formed. I'm not going
    to tell you how the game is because, you should play it to find out. That's
    about it...Anyways...I hope you like my FAQ.
    
    I dedicate this FAQ to.....Trace Jackson (Meowthnum1). Trace is always a good
    friend to talk to on AIM, and has always helped me out when I needed help.
    Thank you very much, Trace.

    Weapons
    -------
    In this game, each character has a different weapon depending on their
    personality. Like for instance, Chris carries a sword because she is a knight.
    Anyways...You can always upgrade your weapons at any Blacksmith. Be aware
    though, it costs money. The maximum level that your weapon can achieve is
    10. But, once you get to Budehuc Castle, you can recruit someone who can
    upgrade it to level 16. Check out the Sidequests section for more information.
    
    
    Towns
    -----
    While playing this game, you'll enounter tons of towns. Some are the enemy's,
    while some are your allies. Each town or village contains a Inn. Some
    contain Item Shops, Defensive Gear Vendors, Blacksmiths, Tutors, Bujutsu
    Teachersand etc. But all that depends on what kind of town it is. Small towns
    like Duck Village might not have a lot of stores, but cities liek Vinay Del
    Zexay have tons of stores. That's it for now.
    
    
    Shops
    -----
    In this game, there are shops all around. An Item shop sells healing
    items, and other goodies. An Inn recovers all your health and status for a
    small fee. Blacksmiths upgrade your weapon for a HUGE fee. Armor shops sell
    strong and weak armor. The prices for that depends on the strength of it.
    Trade Shops allow you to buy stuff and sell it somewhere else.
    
    
    ARMOR
    -----
    Most of the good armor in Armor shops costs tons of money. Only buy them if you
    have lots of potch. If you don't have that much money, just upgrade your
    Armor Protect, and Shield Protect skills to the maximum. In the "Buy" section
    of each Armor Shop will be weak armor that costs little money. Also, they have
    unlimited stock of each armor in the "Buy" section. In the "Rarity" section,
    there are very good armor that cost tons of money. Also, they only have like
    1-2 in stock of each armor in the "Rarity" section. By the way, I have no
    idea why some people can't equip certain type of armor.
    
    
    Dungeons
    --------
    Throughout this game, there will be tons of dungeons. Some are filled with
    weak monsters while some are filled with very strong foes. Most have
    different turns that you can take. For instance, taking a different path
    might take you to a dead end, but with a treasure chest filled with items,
    and such. When entering a dungeon that is not required for the storyline,
    make sure that your characters are very strong, and have tons of items.
    You don't want to die. At the end of some, there are some semi-hard bosses.
    If your at the right level, it should be a breeze. That's about it.
    
    
    Items
    -----
    Items are used to trigger cut-scenes, heal people, or cure status's. Many
    healing items are won after battles. You should have a equal amount of
    healing, and status items. Most of the ones that trigger cut-scenes are
    given to you, not found, so that's a relief. Anyways...Do not use healing
    items when you are not that badly hurt. Instead, use the power of your
    runes. Some of the runes heal tons of HP but use them wisely...That's it.
    
    
    Runes
    -----
    Runes are another word for magic. They can be equipped on any character. Some
    are elemental while others are used to summon powerful monsters. Many of the
    spells take little time except some. Very little of them takes like 2-3 turns
    to cast it. If your hit during that time, you will stop the chanting and
    you'll have to start all over. All the rune skills can be used for a certain
    time. When you can't use that attack anymore, you have to rest in a Inn.
    Almost all the runes are rare so when you find one, please take it. You might
    regret it later on. That's pretty much it.
    
    
    Skills
    ------
    In this game, there are various types of skills that each character can
    learn. In order to upgrade the skills, you need to gain Skill Points which
    can be earned in any battle, except deuls. For instance, if you were to
    upgrade the Armor Protect skill, you would raise that particular character's
    Defense. The skill Swing will allow you to atack more than once in one turn.
    Damage increases the amount of damage that you deal, and Holy Dash increases
    your speed which determines if that character performs their action first.
    By the way, those skills along with many others can be learned from any
    Bujutsu Teacher.
    
    Now, there are Tutor Shops who teach magical skills like Magic Resistance,
    and etc. Say that you have a Earth Rune equipped on someone. Well...Take them
    to a Tutor Shop and upgrade their Earth Magic. Doing that will make that
    particular magic stronger for a character. Magic Resistance lowers the amount
    of damage you recieve from Magic attacks. All the others are pretty self
    explanatory. That's it.

    horse races, and etc. Ok?

                                The Land And Its Past
    
    Grassland -- A region of vast plains and sparse woods, where gales blow strong
    and nature thrives.
    
    The Six Clans, spread across Grassland symbolize the wilderness that they
    inhabit.
    
    To the east lies the might Holy Kingdom of Harmonia, and to the south, The
    Republic of Tinto.
    
    Situated to the west beside the sea is the Zexen Federation, a mercantile
    nation prospering remarkably from recent increases in contenental trade.
    
    Military aggression by larger nations toward Grassland has been turned back
    narrowly time after time.
    
    Confrontation between the six clans and the Zexens has especially deep roots.
    Grassland continues to hang in a dangerous balance between war and peace.

    Watch the cut-scene. Here, you can't run with your horse. Salome, Roland,
    and Borus will leave your party. When entering the village, you'll encounter
    8 Karaya Fighters, but 4 at a time. For them, just keep attacking them. They
    should be easy to take down. After getting through the village, you'll be back
    in Brass Castle.

    Exit the room. Enter the room on the right side. Leave that one, and get to the

                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Teach Chris and Borus tons of skills like Swing, Armor Protect, Damage, and
    Heavy Damage. Trust me, you'll need them! Go inside the room on the right side
    of Chris's. Rest in your room. Go back to that room, and add everyone to your
    party. Teach them some new skills like Armor Protect, Swing, Damage, and Heavy
    Damage. Level up their weapons to. Level up 1 level with each character. If you
    need lots of expierence, fight Shadows in the Zexen Forest. If you don't want
    to do that, you can go to the North Cavern...
    
    
                                   North Cavern
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Before entering this place, your weapons should be at level 7.
    The monsters here are kinda strong so you can get lots of EXP. When you reach
    the end, you'll encounter a mini boss.

    Chimera
    - - - -
    
    This battle is hard as hell. Just keep attacking it. Watch out for it's poison
    attack. When someone gets poisoned, immediatley cure them as you don't want
    them to lose 20 HP per turn. Heal people when needed. Having Heavy Damage, and
    Swing maxed out is very good in this battle. Good luck!
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Get back to Brass Castle. Talk to Salome, and choose that your ready. Time for
    a battle.

    Commence Battle #2
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Conditions to win: Defeat 5 enemy units.
    
    Conditions to lose: Chris's unit is defeated.
    
    Move Leo to the bottom. Have Chris and Roland defend. Three Lizards will
    attack Leo. After they attack, move all of your units to the top. Have Leo's
    unit intercept the attack by the enemy. You should win. Beecham will withdraw.
    Have Borus attack the same unit as Leo. Borus should win. Make Percival group
    attack the Lizards in front of him. Let Chris attack clan right beneath here.
    Chris should win. You just won a major victory.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Leo, Roland, Borus, and Percival will join your party. Group them up according
    to their defense. The person with the highest defense should be placed in
    front, and so on. Walk into the burning the village, and you'll fight 6
    Lizard Fighters. If you had your Swing, and Armor Protect in the ranges of
    B's, each Lizard should go down in one hit. After the battle, continue
    walking. Watch the cut-scene. When you reach the entrance of the Lizards,
    you'll fight a boss.

    Shiba
    - - - - - - - -
    
    Focus all your attacks on Shiba as the battle will end when he dies. If you
    had your Swing, and Armor Protect in the ranges of B's, it should be pretty
    easy. The other reason to go after Shiba first is that he has pretty strong
    attacks out of his clan. He's really strong, but he should go down in a
    couple of turns. I hope that helps.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, the Lizards will run inside, and hide. Watch the other
    cut-scene. Choose to deul Lucia. You will lose no matter what. You'll be back
    in Brass Castle.

    When entering this place, Chris will say that she's not feeling so good.
    After getting to the end of the forest, Chris will faint. You'll be back in
    Brass Castle.
    
    
                                   Brass Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Talk to Percival near the gate. He'll join your party. Get ready to go to
    Iskay Village. Before getting there, head to Budehuc Castle.
    
    
                                   Budehuc Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    You should only come here if you want to start recruiting people. I suggest
    that you do come here because recruiting people really helps out. Anyways...
    when you reach the village, watch the cut-scene. After the cut-scene, you
    can start recruiting people. Now, get to Iskay Village.
    
    
                                   Iskay Village
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Watch the cut-scene. Percival will leave your party. Recruit Watari for
    100,000 potch. Watari is between the first 2 buildings on the right side.
    He'll join the 108 Stars. Get to the right side of the windmill. Lizards will
    ambush you after the cut-scene. You'll fight 4 Lizard Fighters. You'll lose
    the battle. Fight them again. Then run back to the windmill. You'll fight a
    boss.

    Shiba
    - - - - - - - -
    
    Just focus on Shiba as he inflicts the most damage. Besides, your party is
    pretty weak since you don't have Leo, Borus, and all the others with you. It's
    just common sense to go after him first. Right now, Nash is in your party. So,
    when you get hurt, DO NOT use healing items. Instead, use Nash's Rune power
    called "Kindness Drops". They heal tons of HP, and cure all status's. I hope
    that strategy works.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, Chris will deul Jimba. Jimba lets you win. When the deul is
    over, Borus, Roland, Leo, and Louis will join your party. Level up everyone's
    weapons before leaving. Get back to Vinay Del Zexay.

    When you enter the city, you'll see soem guy chasing a kid. Talk to the wierd
    looking singers to learn about their missing child. Go to the footsteps of the
    council building. There, you'll deul Guilaume. For him, DO NOT use Deathblows
    as he will always defend. Instead, just attack. You should win if you leveled
    up your weapons in Iskay Village. After the deul, tell the people to go to
    Budehuc Castle. Nei, Toppa, and Shaban will join the 108 stars. Get back to
    Brass Castle.
    
    
                                   Brass Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Watch the cut-scene. Rest in your room. Watch the other cut-scene. After you
    wake up, enter the room on the right side. Check the bookshelfs to find Nash
    hiding. Do not agree with him right now. Instead, go to Mt. Hei-Tou.
    
    
                                   Mt. Heo-Tou
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    When you enter this place, the monsters in here should be fairly easy to
    beat. Anyways...I forgot where the mini-boss is located at. Sorry! Well...
    When you find it, it's name will be Blue Mantix.

    Blue Mantix
    - - - - - -
    
    Before starting this battle, make sure everyone is in the correct formation
    according to the level of defense. Put the highest in front, and so on. Start
    attacking it, but heal when you can. You don't want anyone to die. It doesn't
    really matter if you die or not because this mini-boss gives out very little
    skill points. Anyways...Do not use any Rune magic. Just focus on attacking it.
    If you had everyones' Heavy Damage, Armor Protect, and Swing skills maxed out
    (which means having them at an A), it should go down in little or no time.
    Keep attacking it, and it should die. Good luck!
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After defeating it, leave Mt. Heo-Tou and head back to Iskay Village.

    In Iskay Village, there is a guy named Gordon. Say yes to his question for him
    to join the 108 Stars. Then, enter the Inn. Go upstairs and choose the first
    option. Mio will join the 108 Stars. Now, head back to Budehuc Castle.

                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Nash will be near the gates that are closer to Zexen Forest. Agree with him.
    When you get inside the well, just keep going forward. If you are to get
    attacked, just use Nash's Kindness Drops Rune magic to heal your HP, and
    Status. After escaping from Brass Castle, you'll beat Chapter 2.

    to as it if 100% OPTIONAL. When you are in the market, talk to the little boy
    who is by the man. The man will say that the kid's father is lying. Now, enter
    the Rune Shop and leave. Pay attention to the password that the kids will say.
    Actually...You don't have to remember it because I will do it for you! The kids
    will be in the alley on the left. Enter that alley, and climb up the ladder. Go
    up to the window, and choose "The (I forgot) Knights". After the LONG
    cut-scene, head to the gates of the city.
    
    Before leaving though, buy some lottery tickets. My recomendation is to buy 5
    Seqntt and 5 Random tickets. Wait 45 minutes. Once that has passed, save at
    the inn. Then go to the Lottery Ticket seller. Check your tickets. If they did
    not win, reset the game, and go back to the Lottery place. Keep doing this
    until you win at LEAST 500,000 potch. Trust me, it's worth it. When you win
    that much money, level up everyone's weapons. Also, level up everyone's Armor
    Protect skill. You'll need it later on. Also, buy Hugo, and Sgt. Joe some
    armor. When you are all done, head to North Cavern.
    
    
                                   North Cavern
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Watch the cut-scene. Walk a litte, another cut-scene will be triggered. When it
    is over, climb up the spiral stairway. Watch out for the holes on the way up.
    You'll find two people. Time for a boss fight.

    Bandit
    Bandit
    - - - -
    
    Attack with Hugo, Sgt. Joe, and Lulu. Have the others defend since they are
    weak. Both Bandits have low HP, but their attack is pretty high. Use Lulu's
    Rune Magic, Sword of Cyclone to get rid of them fast. Heal when nessecary.
    Keep everyone alive. DO NOT USE ANY RUNE MAGIC TO HEAL YOUR PARTY!!! Ok?
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    
    Continue walking. You'll fight them again, except there will be 4 instead of
    2. Use the same strategy as before. Watch the cut-scene after the battle. Time
    for a deul. You'll lose no matter what. Get back to Vinay Del Zexay.
    
    
                                   Vinay Del Zexay
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Watch the cut-scene as you enter the place. Remember that Pentacle that Jimba
    gave you? Well...Deliver it to Chris's house. It's the one on the left side
    that has grass on the gate. Once inside, Chris's butler will greet you. You
    can either get 10,000 potch, rest for free, or nothing. I chose nothing. It
    does not change up the story if choose another option. Rest or save at the Inn
    at least three times. After doing that, go back to the Council Building. Once
    inside, you'll give the letter to the represenative no matter what option you
    choose. Head back to the Inn. Before doing do, make sure that each character
    has a Medicine D equipped. Enter the Inn, and relax as a LONG cut-scene will
    start. You'll be outside the Inn. Take a left, and you'll fight a boss.
    
    - - - - - - - -
    Zexen Knight
    
    Zexen Infantry
    Zexen Infantry
    - - - - - - - -
    
    Attack the Zexen Knight first as he does a lot of damage. The Zexen Infantry
    don't do a lot of damage. Use Hugo's Water Rune to put everyone to sleep.
    That will make all the enemies go to sleep. Remember though, when you attack
    them, they'll awaken, so use it wisely. Also, use Lulu's Sword Of Cyclone to
    get rid of them quickly.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Keep going. Take a right, and run towards the gates. You'll fight another boss,
    except, there will be 2 Zexen Knights instead of 1. Use the same strategy as
    before. When you get to the gate, you can choose to fight. If you choose to
    fight, it will stop after a while. Head to Brass Castle.
    
    
                                   Brass Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Enter the castle. You'll be underground after the cut-scene. Keep walking until
    you reach the exit. Now, you're in Vinay Del Zexay. All you need to do is to go
    to Karaya Village.
    
    
                                   Karaya Village
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Get to the main part of the burning village. Watch the very sad cut-scene. You
    just beat Chapter 1 with Hugo.

    You'll be in Duck Village.

                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Watch the cut-scene. Choose the first option. Buy 5 Seqntt and 5 Random Lottery
    Tickets. Try to win the 500,000 Potch prize. Enter the Inn. Lilly, Reed, and
    Samus will join your party. Leave the village, and head to the Ancient Highway.
    
    
                                   Ancient Highway
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Keep walking until a split road will be visible. Watch the cut-scene. When you
    get out of the place, choose to join the fighting. Time for a boss fight!

    Zexen Infantry
    Zexen Infantry
    
    Zexen Knights
    Zexen Knights
    - - - - - - - -
    
    Attack the Infantry first as they are in front of the Knights, and they will
    cover them. The Infantry do not do a lot of damage, but the Knights deal a lot
    of damage. Use the Wind rune to put them to sleep if you are having trouble.
    Heal when nessecary, and you should win.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Walk a little, and you'll fight the same battle again. After this battle,
    Lucia, and Chris will deul. Enter the lizard home called the Great Hollow.
    
    
                                   Great Hollow
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    One inside, watch the cut-scene. Sharpen your skills like Swing, Damage, and
    Armor Protect. Level up your weapons as high as you can. Talk to one of the
    lizards to get crop seeds. Lilly and the gang are upstairs. Talk to them.
    Talk to one of the lizard guards to get a Sunbeam. Talk to the lizard near the
    Bujutus Teacher to get Old Book Vol. 3. After doing that, go the Inn. Rest if
    you are hurt. Once you wake up, get the Iron Hammer from the guy in the Trade
    Shop. Lilly will now be on the bottom right side of the stairs. Go over to
    them. Lilly, Reed, and Samus will join party. Now, leave the Great Hollow.
    Once outside, you'll find Jimba. Take Jimba to Lucia (Lucia is near the Inn).
    After taking him to Lucia, leave the place. You just beat Chapter 2.
    
    
    
    > Chapter 3
    ===========
    
    First, head to Mt. Heo-Tou to fight a mini boss.
    
    
                                   Mt. Heo-Tou
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Go past 2 screens. Take the first left. Then, take the first right. Now, it
    does not matter which path you take as both will lead you to the same place.
    Continue walking, and you'll see the monster. Walk up to it to fight it.
    
    - - - - - -
    Blue Mantix
    - - - - - -
    
    Attack it, and put it to sleep with the Wind Rune. You need to do that
    because it does a strong magical attack and all the characters in your party
    don't have a high MAG DEF except Hugo. His is not that high. Anyways...You
    need to keep everyone alive if you want the EXP and Skill Points. Keep putting
    it to sleep so it can't attack. If you run out of the sleep attack and the
    monster is still not dead, attack with Hugo and Fubar. Have the rest defend.
    That way, you'll just have to worry about 2 people getting seriously hurt.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Now, head to Lake Castle.
    
    
                                   Lake Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Enter the big house at the end to find Thomas, the castle master. Sebastian
    will greet you. Leave and go to the gate. Watch the cut-scene, and go back
    inside the big house. Choose to rest. Get outside and talk to Thomas. Yet
    again, go back to the gate, then back to Thomas. Prepare yourself (build up
    your skills, equip healing items, and etc...). Come back to Thomas. After that,
    rest in the Inn. When you wake up, leave the Inn. Meet with Caesar who is near
    the Lottery Ticket place. Watch the strategy battle. You should be in the Yaza
    Plains.
    
    
                                   Yaza Plains
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Start running. After a while, you'll fight some soldiers.

    Attack the Infantry first as they are in front of the Knights, and they will

    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Keep running, and you'll fight more of them. Use the same strategy as before.
    When you reach the end, go to the Great Hollow.
    
    
                                   Great Hollow
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Watch the cut-scene. Head to Brass Castle. In the middle of the place, two
    people will be arguing. Choose to fight. Hallec and Mua will join your party.
    Time for a boss fight!
    
    - - - - - - -
    Zexen Knights
    Zexen Knights
    
    Leo
    
    Roland
    - - - - - - -
    
    Use the sleep magic to put all of them to sleep. Leo, and the Zexen Knights
    will be in front so take them out. Roland will be at the back because he is
    an archer. Take out Leo as fast as you can. He is one of the best tanks in
    the game. His defense is very high, and so is his HP, so just keep pounding
    on him. You can't afford to lose this battle. Heal when nessecary. When Leo
    is gone, go after Roland. He won't do much damage to you because if you are
    close to him, his damage greatly decreases. His defense is very weak, and he
    has kinda high HP. When he is gone, use the sleep magic on the remaining
    Zexen Knights, and attack like crazy. Heal when needed again. I hope that
    helps.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, Mua and Hallec will join the 108 Stars! Now, head back to
    the Great Hollow.

                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Meet Apple who is near the waterfall. Agree to help Chisha Village. Go, and
    inform Luce. Now, go to Duck Village.
    
    
                                   Duck Village
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Talk to the boy upstairs in the Item Shop. Give him the bowl if you have it.
    If you don't, you can get it in chapter 4 or 5. Now, head to Chisha Village.
    
    
                                   Chisha Village
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Walk up to men in blue. Time for a boss fight. Before going up to them, make
    sure that Fubar and Hallec are teamed up together!

    Harmonia Soldiers
    Harmonia Soldiers
    Harmonia Soldiers
    Harmonia Soldiers
    - - - - - - - - -
    
    Use Hallec's and Fubar's combo attack to hurt all the soldiers bad. You can
    use the sleep magic if you want, but I suggest that you don't. You are going
    to need it for an upcoming battle. Instead, heal when needed, and continue
    using Hallec's and Fubar's combo attack. That combo attack shouldv'e hurt
    the soldiers bad enough that they will die with one hit. Do not use no
    rune magic. OK?
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Run down to the middle of the village. You'll fight the same battle except
    this time, there will be 5 Harmonia Soldiers. Use the same strategy as before.
    Continue walking. Time for a boss fight.

    Montor Legionnaire

    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Use the same strategy as the Harmonia Soldiers. The only difference from the
    Harmonia Soldiers is that the Montors do tons of damage. Use the sleep magic,
    and take out the Montors first. Also, use Hallec's and Fubar's combo attack
    to hurt all of the enemies. When the enemies wake up, use the sleep magic
    again. Continue using it. Don't let them stay awake for more then one turn.
    Also, heal when needed. When you run out of the sleep magic, attack like
    crazy. Do not let no one die as this battle gives out a lot of Skill Points.
    The Montor Legionnaire's do about the same damage as the Harmonia Soldiers.
    Their defense is low, and their HP is kinda high. The Montor's defense and
    HP are pretty high. I hope that helps.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Finally, after all the comotion, talk to the old lady in the middle of the
    vilage. You can recruit Emily (in the second part underground) only if the
    PWR of your party is more then 600. NOT ATK, PWR!!!! There is a difference.
    If you are not strong enough, you can get her later. Talk to the guy who
    is underneath the Armor Shop. Agree to pay his bar tab. He'll join the 108
    Stars. Try to leave the village, and you'll deul the Bishop of Harmonia. I
    forgot the effect of each phrase he says. Sorry! Anyways, you'll wake up in
    the Inn. Go outside, and talk to Caesar. Sasarai will challenge you to a deul.
    I forgot the strategy for this one too. Sorry! After all that is done, leave
    the village.you'll be able to go to two new places called Flame Champion
    Hideaway, and Caleria. DO NOT GO TO CALERIA. YOU MUST FIGHT A VERY STRONG
    MINI-BOSS BEFORE BEING ABLE TO GO THERE. IT IS NOT WORTH IT BECAUSE THE BOSS
    IS VERY HARD. YOUR PARTY IS TO WEAK SO DO NOT GO THERE. Sorry about the all
    caps disclaimer, but it had to be said. Instead of going to Caleria, head to
    the Flame Champion Hideaway.
    
    
                                   Flame Champion Hideaway
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Watch the cut-scene. Head straight to the teleporter (looks like a small white
    dot on the mini-map). Step on it, and you will be teleported. Straight ahead
    will a door. Enter the area beyong that, and....You just beat Chapter 3 with
    Hugo.

    You'll be in Vinay Del Zexay.

                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Choose the first option. Walk down the set of stairs to greet your fellow
    party members. Buy some lettery tickets and try to win the 500,000 potch prize.
    I suggest buying 5 Seqntt, and 5 Random tickets. Talk to little girl upstairs
    of the Inn to get Script #2. After winning the 500,000 Potch prize, level up
    your party's weapons. Head to the gates of the Zexen capital. Go to the
    Great Hollow.
    
    
                                   Great Hollow
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Before gong here, level up your characters and try to get some more Skill
    Points. When you get to the Great Hollow, follow Shiba up the stairs. After
    the cut-scene, build up everyone's skills like Armor Defense, Swing, and
    Damage. Buy some Armor from the Armor Shop, and level up your party's weapons
    to the maximum level that you can. That is why I said to win the 500,000 Potch
    prize. When you are all done with that, talk to the lizard fighters who are
    near the right set of stairs. Who cares about what they say, just follow them.
    When you finally reach the lizard fighters, you'll fight them!
    
    - - - - - - - -

    Use Ace & Joker's combo attack. That attack should hurt them pretty badly.
    There is not much to say about them because they are easy to take down. Just
    use hit them a few times and they should die because they have low HP. Really
    low.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, Shiba will join your party. Go back into the main part of
    the Great Hollow, and buy him some armor. Also, level up his Armor Protect,
    Damage, and Swing skills as high as you can. Rest in the Inn if you took some
    serious damage from the previous battle. After all that is done, go back to
    the place that the lizards were running to. You'll meet the Zexen Knights and
    their captain, Chris Lightfellow. Time for a boss battle. You don't have to
    win, but if you do, you get a ton of skill points, so......

    Use Ace and Joker's combo attack. Go after Chris first as she heals her
    comrades. Also, Chris will do a VERY powerful water attack. If that
    happens twice, you will lose the match. Just hope that she does not do
    that attack. Instead of having each character attack Chris, use their
    combo attack. It will do a lot of damage. You can also use Geddoe's Lightning
    Rune, but it is very weak since you couldn't level up his Lightning Magic
    Skill (There is no Skill teachers yet). Now, heal when needed. You should be
    able to win if Chris does not do that water attack. After a while, Chris will
    become Berserk which means she'll do tons of damage. I hope that helps.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    During the battle with the Zexen Knights Captain, Chris Lightfellow, Chief
    Zepon of the Great Hollow was killed, or more like "murdered" without a trace.
    Go back to where you had met him before (inside the Great Hollow, upstairs).
    Watch the cut-scene. After that, head to Karaya Village.

    Use Ace and Joker's combo attack to hurt all of the enemies. The Karaya
    Fighters do TONS more damage then Alia because Alia is a archer. So, take out
    the Karaya Fighters first. The good thing is, they have low HP. You can
    use Geddoe's Lightning Rune but it is weak because you can't level up his
    lightning magic yet. Instead, use your regular attacks. When the fighters are
    gone, use the entire group's combo attack on Alia. It should weaken her
    pretty badly. If she doesn't die, attack her again. When you are going to
    attack her, the characters are going to go up to her. That is good, because
    the closer you are, the less damage she will do. Heal when neeeded. I hope
    that helps.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    If you are a really cheap person who hates to spend potch, talk to the girl
    near the Blacksmith to recieve a Antitoxin. One is better nothing, isn't it?
    Now, you have to talk to Jimba. You are probably wondering where Jimba is...
    Jimba is at the house that is located at the end of the village. Go over
    there. After the cut-scene, try to leave the village. You'll meet up with
    this girl who looks nothing like a Karayan. Being as stupid as she can be, Alia
    chases the lady. Time to follow her. First, she'll be near the save point that
    is on the plains. Continue following Alia. When you finally meet catch her,
    Joker will save all of yall with his fire MGC. Yay! Head back to Karaya
    Village. You will find that it is on fire. Alia will join your party. Choose
    not to fight. The zexen knights are strong, and you don't want to die. After
    it is all done, Alia will join the 108 Stars. Now, head to Caleria. Before
    doing so, head to Mt. Hei-Tou.
    
    
                                   Mt. Heo-Tou
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The only reason why you should be here is if you want to level up a bit and
    gain a lot of skill points. Take the first turn in the road. Enter the area on
    the right side. It doesn't matter what road you take now. Continue going
    forward. There, you will see a big blue crab. Walk up to it to fight it.
    
    - - - - - -
    Blue Mantix
    - - - - - -
    
    Do not use the Mercenary B combo attack because there is only one enemy.
    The Blue Mantix will do two attacks. One that targets one person, and another
    that hurts everyone. Be aware though, both attacks are magical so heal when
    needed. The attack that hurts everyone does a lot of damage compared to the
    single target one. This mini-boss has a lot of HP, so...It will take a while
    to take it down. Now is a good time to use the lightning rune that Geddoe
    has. Use the strongest attack that you got. If you are having a hard time
    hurting the boss, use Alia's Shield Rune -> Battle Oath to make your
    characters berserk (DMG x 1.5). Also, use Alia's Earth rune to heal your
    comrades. Now, good luck!
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, there will be a treasure chest in the place of the monster.
    Open it to get 85,790 potch and tons of great items. Now, head to Lake Castle.
    That way, you can start recruiting people.
    
    
                                   Lake Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    If you are running low on cash, buy some lottery tickets, and try to win a
    prize (preferably the 500,000 potch one). When you are all done, head to
    Great Hollow.
    
    
                                   Great Hollow
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Remember where those lizard fighters were in the beginning? Go there, and
    get to the place that has like three different pathways. In the corner will
    be a little person digging. Go up to him, and he will join the 108 stars.
    Finally head to Mountain Pass.
    
    
                                   Mountain Pass
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Go straight. Take the first right. Continue going forward. Now, use the save
    point when you see it. Up ahead, you will see a huge monster. Before engaging
    in battle, make sure that everyone's HP is very high. Now, here it is...
    
    - - - - - -
    Twin Snake
    
    Right Head
    
    Left Head
    - - - - - -
    
    The Right Head uses a fire attack that hurts anyone that is close to it. The
    Left Head does a very strong rune attack that hurts everyone no matter where
    they are. Use the Double Tusk rune on the left head. Use Alia's Shield ->
    Battle Oath to make your party members berserk (DMG x 1.5). Keep using that
    until at least 4/6 people in your party are berserk. Perferably Joker, Ace,
    Geddoe, and Queen. Have everyone else go after the Left Head. The reason you
    are focusing on the Left Head is because it will heal it's comrades, so it is
    in best interest to take it out first. If you are hurt, use Alia's Earth
    Ruen to heal you. You need to attack with as many people as you have, so don't
    use items unless you are out of the earth magic. Once the Left Head is gone,
    focus on the Right Head. Since most of your party members are berserk, it
    should go down in a while. When that is gone, use Geddoe's strongest
    lightning attacks on the Twin Snake. Continue healing when needed, and you
    should do fine.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    That monster shouldv'e given you a lot of skill points. Open the treasure chest
    that is in the place of the monster to get 37,370 potch and tons of great
    items. Take the path that the man says that leads to Caleria. Welcome to...
    
    
                                   Caleria
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Watch the cut-scene. Talk to the kid in the blacksmith place to get Tomato
    Seeds. Talk to the masked man upstairs in the Inn to learn about the Theater.
    Now, head to the big building at the end of the city. Listen carefully to what
    Joker says. You just beat Chapter 1 with Geddoe!
    
    
    
    > Chapter 2
    ===========
    
    You will be in the Inn that is located in Caleria.
    
    
                                   Caleria
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Leave the Inn. Climb up the set of stairs outside near the trade shop to
    recieve a bag with a letter in it. Ace and the rest will be outside the Inn.
    Go, and meet them. Now, head to Le Buque.
    
    
                                   Le Buque
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    When you get here, you will be greeted by the super friendly visitors!
    
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Franz
    
    Ruby
    
    Mantor
    Mantor
    
    Mantor Legionnaire
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Use Ace and Joker's combo attack to hurt everyone. Franz and Ruby will the
    most damage. First, get rid of the Mantor Legionnaire's. Use Alia's Shield ->
    Battle Oath to make your party members berserk. When both Mantor Legionnaire's
    are dead, go after the Mantors. Continue using Ace and Joker's combo attack
    when you can. The Mantors don't do a lot of damage but they still pose a
    threat. Heal when needed. When both Mantor's are gone, use Geddoe's strongest
    attack to get rid of Franz. Continue healing your comrades. When Franz is
    gone, use your entire party's combo attack to hurt it badly. It has pretty
    high defense so it will take a while to take it down. Continue using Geddoe's
    lightning rune to hurt it badly. I hope that helps.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, walk to where all of the people are meeting. Talk to the men
    on the far left corner. Agree to pay him 1000 potch to deul him. Beat him, and
    he will join the 108 stars. Now, get to the far right side near the Armor Shop
    to see Sarah walking. Talk to Franz who is on the in the far middle, I
    believe. Get the Arabian Kennel from the person who is near Iku (beside Franz).
    Finally, walk to the middle of the village. Go and talk to Iku. Now, leave
    Iku's place. Talk to the little kid near the Armor Shop to get some Herb
    Seeds. Leave the village, and head to Mt. Senai.
    
    
                                   Mt. Senai
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Use the save point. Enter the next area. Cross the bridge, and walk forward.
    When you get to the 2nd bridge, you'll see Sarah walking. Walk over to where
    she was. Continue following the trail. Do not fight them. You will not gain
    any EXP or skill points. Watch the cut-scene. Don't even go on further into
    this mountain as there is nothing left. Head back to Mountain Path.
    
    
                                   Mountain Path
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Watch the really cool cut-scene. You just beat Chapter 2 with Geddoe!
    
    
    
    > Chapter 3
    ===========
    
    You'll be in Brass Castle. Level up your Armor Protect, Damage, and Swing
    skills if you want. Also, level up Joker's fire skill, and Geddoe's lightning
    skill. When you are all done, head to Vinay Del Zexay.
    
    
                                   Vinay Del Zexay
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Recruit Dominic by going outside the Armor Shop. Buy the Mole Armor from
    him, and he will join the 108 stars. Go to the Inn, and rest. After the
    cut-scene, leave the city, and head to the North Cavern.
    
    
                                   North Cavern
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Go through the first tunnel. Do the same thing again. You'll see a spiral
    stairway. Climb it to the top. Stay close to the walls since there are holes
    in the ground, and you can fall down them. That is a bad thing, just so you
    know. When you get to the second spiral stairway, use the holes to get to the
    bottom fast. It takes less time to fall down the holes, then to go down the
    stairway. Now, you can choose to deul duke if you want, but I say don't do it.
    After all that is done, run towards the light. After the interesting
    cut-scene, head to Lake Castle.
    
    
                                   Lake Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Buy whatever you want, especially armor from Dominic. Visit the libary which
    is upstairs on the right. After the cut-scene, leave the room, and head
    downstairs. Choose "I suppose". Get outside to greet the the Zexen Knights.
    Time for a boss fight!
    
    - - - - - - - -
    Zexen Marshall
    Zexen Marhsall
    Zexen Marshall
    Zexen Marshall
    Zexen Marshall
    - - - - - - - -
    
    Use Ace and Joker's combo attack to hurt all of them. Have the others focus
    on Zexen Marshall. Keep using the mercenary b combo attack. Use Alia's
    Shield -> Battle Oath to make your comrades stronger. These Zexen Marshalls
    have low HP, and low attack. Also, they have low defense so it should be easy
    to take them. That's all I got to say.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Hurry, run towards the castle. You'll fight them again. Continue running
    towards the castle, and you'll fight them again. After all that is done, head
    to the Flame Champion Hideaway.
    
    
                                   Flame Champion Hideaway
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Walk to the next area. Take the left path. The teleporter is straight across.
    When you get teleported, head straight. You just beat Chapter 3 with Geddoe.
    Start Thomas's chapters before going on to Chapter 4. Once you start Chapter 4,
    you can't do any of Thomas's, so...

    ===========
    
    You'll be in Lake Castle.
    
    
                                   Lake Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Head towards the big house at the end. Sebastain will greet you. You'll wake up
    in your room. Head down stairs to greet Sebastian again. Greet everyone.
    Martha, and Piccolo are to the right of the big house. Take the left that leads
    towards the bottom to find Juan lying on the ground. Take a left and enter the
    metal door. Follow the corners and go upstairs. On the far right will be Muto,
    the warehouse keeper. Enter the big house. Go upstairs and enter the room on
    the far right. Inside here will be the libarian, Eike. The last person, Cecile,
    is at the gate. Finally, after you have met the current members of Lake Castle,
    head back to the big building at the end. You will recieve a letter that you
    have to deliver to the Zexen Knights. Cecile will join your party. I suggest
    to build up everyone's Armor Protect skill. Also, buy 5 Seqntt, and 5 Random
    lottery tickets and try to win the 500,000 potch prize. Trust me, you will
    need it. Leave the castle, and level up a bit at the Yaza Plains. When you are
    done, head to Brass Castle.
    
    
                                   Brass Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Once inside, listen to what Cecile says. Talk to Roland who is inside the
    castle. He'll say that Salome is upstairs. Enter the room that is located at
    the bottom right side. In there, you'll see Percival and Borus talking. Go up
    stairs. Salome is in the middle room. After you greet him, and talk, leave the
    Brass Castle. Head back to Lake Castle.
    
    
                                   Lake Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Enter the big house at the end. Sleep in your room (third and fourth door
    upstairs). When you wake up, get outside to see Sebastian talking to a
    villager from a nearby village. You have to find the baby named, THOMAS!!!
    Start by checking the doors on the right side. Check the tombstone area (beside
    the warehouse). Look in the libary. Talk to Juan, and he'll join your party.
    If you have enough money, buy him some armor from Brass Castle for him. Also,
    level up all of your weapons. After all that is done, head to Mt. Hei-Tou.
    
    
                                   Mt. Hei-Tou
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Keep going straight. Don't turn into the other paths. Just go straight. When
    you reach the "end", you will see a little boy. And, BOSS FIGHT!!!
    
    - - - - -
    Wild Boar
    - - - - -
    
    Use Cecile's and Thomas's combo attack to hurt this boss pretty bad. Have Juan
    and Piccolo attack. Keep using Thomas's and Cecile's combo attack. This wild
    boar has tons of HP, does a lot of damage, and has a high defense. That is why
    you have to keep using that combo attack. Also, that is why I said to upgrade
    your weapons. Anyways, heal when needed, and you should do fine. If a
    character dies, reset the game. This boss gives out a lot of EXP and skill
    points so you need to keep each character alive. That is all.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Take the little boy back to the castle. Talk to Muto, Juan, and Martha to learn
    the whereabouts of Sebastian. Then, enter the main part of the castle. Watch
    the cut-scene. Now, you have to find the record. The record is inside Thomas's
    room. After that is done, talk to Juan, Martha, and Piccolo to trigger a
    cut-scene. Leave the castle. Many towns will now be open. Enter the castle
    again. Thomas will go to sleep. When you wake up, you'll find that Eike has
    been missing for weeks. Head to the front gates. Shizu will join the 108 stars.
    Head to Iskay Village to recruit a strong person.
    
    
                                   Iskay Village
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Talk to Mel who is between the 2 buildings in front. Tell her to come to
    Budehuc and she'll join the 108 stars. Go back to Lake Castle.
    
    
                                   Lake Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    When you get here, rest. The next morning, talk to Shizu. The elevator is now
    working. Go over there, and Shizu will take you to the last floor, or more
    like the "unknown" level. From here, go down the path until you see a fork in
    the road. That is why I said to recruit Mel. The monsters down here are very
    strong. Keep going down the road until you see a path that leads to the left.
    Continue walking. Take the right path. You just beat Chapter 1 with Thomas.
    
    
    > Chapter 2
    ===========
    
    Now, you can recruit tons of people. So...Here it goes...Check the 108 stars
    section to recruit them. The reason I'm not listing them here is because it
    will confuse yall. You probably got them from the other chapters. NOTE: You can
    get all but 8 stars in chapter 4, so I'll have all of the stars listed in
    Chapter 4. Ok? Head to Iskay Village.
    
    
                                   Iskay Village
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Tell the soldiers where Budehuc Castle is at. Now, go to Budehuc Castle.
    
    
                                   Lake Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    After the cut-scene, level up everyone's Armor Protect, and Swing to an A or
    higher. Have Mel, Cecile, Thomas, Juan and Piccolo in your party. Go to your
    room to rest. Once you wake up, head to the gates. After the cut-scene,
    everyone will be in front of the big house at the end. Talk to Caesar and
    Apple who are in front of the lottery ticket place. Listen to Caesar, and go
    to the courtyard (area in front of big building). Once the cut-scene is over,
    rest in your room. Then, head to the front gates. Once that is done, talk to
    Martha, Piccolo, and Muto who are inside the huge building to the far right
    side. When you finish doing that, rest in your room. Yet again, in the morning,
    everyone will be in the courtyard. Choose the option titled "Oh, right. Ready."
    if you are ready to fight. Commence Battle!
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Commence Battle #1
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Conditions for victory: Stay alive for _x_ turns.
    
    Conditions for defeat: Ally units are destroyed.
    
    Have Cecile, and Thomas defend until the enemy units get close enough for
    Thomas to use his wind magic on them. After a couple of turns, Hugo and Lilly's
    unit should now come. These are the new conditions:
    
    Conditions for victory: Hugo and Lilly's units escape to the East.
    
    Conditions for defeat: Hugo and Lilly's units are defeated.
    
    Move Hugo and Lilly to the same circle each time you move them towards the
    East. Have Thomas and Cecile defend. The Zexen Knights will go after either
    Hugo or Lilly. Always have Hugo intercept the attack because Lilly's unit is
    so weak. Continue moving Lilly, and Hugo to the East but make sure that they
    are in the same circle. Have Thomas and Cecile continue defending. And, keep
    moving Lilly, and Hugo to the East. Once Hugo, and Lilly escape, the battle
    will end.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, talk to Cecile. Get to the courtyard. After the cut-scene,
    rest in your room. Go down stairs. Talk to Muto who is at the far left side
    of the castle, downstairs. Move Thomas back to his room. The next morning, Leo
    and Percival will be outside, in the courtyard, waiting to greet you. Well,
    don't keep them waiting. Sit back and watch the cut-scene. When it's over,
    rest. The next morning, meet everyone in the courtyard. Organize your party.
    Make sure that Mel is in your party!!! Commence Battle!!!
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Commence Battle #2
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Have all of your units defend. When the enemy gets close enough, use Thomas's
    wind magic on them. Every 2-3 turns, your HP will be restored but not
    completely. Move everyone's units to where Thomas is at. You just need to
    stay alive for a couple of turns. After the a while, it will be a safe
    retreat.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, run toward the huge house at the end. But, the Zexen
    Marshalls will somehow catch up to you while wearing all of that armor. Teach
    them Zexen idiots a lesson!
    
    - - - - - - - -
    Zexen Marshall
    Zexen Marshall
    Zexen Marshall
    Zexen Marshall
    - - - - - - - -
    
    Attack them. Do not use any rune magic on them. Use Thomas and Cecile's combo
    attack to kill one marshall in one turn. Thomas and Cecile should stay alive
    while Juan and Piccolo should die. Mel should also stay alive. Piccolo is
    useless so just have him, along with Juan, defend. Continue using Thomas and
    Cecile's combo attack to get rid of the Zexen Marshalls fast. The Zexen
    Marshalls have high attack power, but low defense. The should all die in as
    little as 5 turns. Also, heal when needed. You don't want your party members
    to die. Well...That's it...
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Keep running, and you'll fight them again. Use the same strategy as before.
    After the battle, continue running. You'll fight them again. Except, there is
    NO WAY TO WIN. No matter how amny times you hit them, you WILL NOT WIN!!!! All
    you have to do is defend, and heal. That's it because after a while the battle
    will end. Geddoe and his gang will come and help you out. Finally, you will
    fight them one last time. Instead of there being 4 Marshalls, there will be
    2 Marshalls. In the words of Yoda "Easy, it is". Once you beat them, you will
    have beaten Thomas's POV (point of view).

    You will learn that the flame champion died. So, one of the main characters
    is given the choice to be the successor of the True Fire Rune. To have the
    best storyline, choose Hugo, or Geddoe. Chris sucks at magic, so I wouldn't
    give her the True Fire Rune. NOTE: THE BATTLES AND MOST OF THE STORYLINE WILL
    BE THE SAME IF YOU CHOOSE ANY ONE OF THEM. JUST SOME SCENSE WILL BE DIFFERENT.
    Just so you are wondering, I chose Chris. Once you choose the new Flame
    Champion, arrange your party according to this:
    ------
    Geddoe
    ------
    Hugo
    Chris
    ------
    
    Geddoe will still have this True Lightning Rune. Time to prove if Hugo
    is ready to recieve the True Fire Rune.
    
    - - - - - -
    Fire Rincar
    - - - - - -
    
    Use True Lightning -> Hammer of Raijin, and have the Hugo, along with the
    Captain of the Zexen Knights attack. Use True Lightning -> Hammer of Raijin
    again. If you ran out of that, use True Lightning -> Soaring Belt, the second
    strongest lightning attack in the game. Continue having Hugo, and Chris
    attack. Heal when nessecary, and you should do fine. Oh yeah, the Fire Rincar's
    attacks, are ugh....FIRE ATTACKS!! Duh! And it is common if one of your
    characters die. But, try to keep everyone alive as this monster gives out
    tons of Skill Points. Now...Good luck!
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Right after you defeat the Fire Rincar, the main villians will arrive. You have
    no choice but to fight them. It doesn't matter if you win or lose. If you want
    to win, do this...
    
    - - - - - - -
    Masked Bishop
    Yuber
    Sarah
    Chimera
    Chimera
    Chimera
    - - - - - - -
    
    This is an optional battle that you do not have to win. To actually  win this
    battle, you have to be quite skilled. Your level should be at least 43 (I had
    levels around 48, and won it in 2 rounds), and you should have Geddoe's
    Lightning skill maxed out. Chris or Hugo should also have a Water Rune
    attached. Remeber to keep that formation from earlier, it will allow you to
    heal easiest. Lastly, you have to have not used up all your most powerful
    magic in the last battle.  If you did, this will be virtually impossible to
    win. The best place to get the requirments is leaving Flame Champion Hideaway
    and fighting in the forests near Alma Kinan (Kaput Forest). You may get into a
    battle with 2 large, blue crabs. Its one of those mini boss battles. This
    battle alone should net you with 3-4 levels. If you can get to Alma Kinan,
    then go, as they have all the things you need to create and ideal party.
    
    In the battle itself, have Geddoe start out with his True Lightning -> Thunder
    Storm to do about 1,000-1,200 damage to ALL the enemies on screen. This will
    kill off the Chimeras, and will put Sarah and the Masked Bishop into critical
    zone. Remember to use the Water Rune on whatever character it is equipped on,
    to heal on the first turn. On the second turn, Sarah will most likely heal
    herself and her party, also use this turn to continue keeping yourself
    healthy. On the second turn, have Geddoe use that same spell again, this
    should kill off the Masked Bishop, and maybe Yuber if he wasnt hit by the
    Kindness Drops. Have Chris or Hugo attack Sarah, and if you are lucky, the
    battle will be over in 2 rounds. If it isnt over, then attack Yuber with the
    strongest magic you have, and Sarah with physical attacks.  Attacking Yuber
    physically is asking for destruction.
    
    one last note: You may want to have each character: Chris, Hugo and Geddoe in
    a different section, so you can cast 3 spells a turn, one healing, and two
    attacking. It will be harder to heal with Kindness Drops, though.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    
    
                                   Chisha Village
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    You'll be inside the Inn. Exit out of it. You'll be at the entrance of the
    peaceful village. Head down to where Caesar is. Commence Battle!
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Commence Battle #1
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Conditions for victory: Destroy 5 enemy units.
    
    Conditions for defeat: Ally units number 5 or less.
    
    You won't be able to control the lizard clan, or the Karaya clan even if you
    chose Hugo as your Flame Champion. Move Chris to the lizard clan in front of
    her. Move Salome's unit to where Beecham is located. Have everyone defend.
    After a couple of turns, you will retreat to Duck Village.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    
                                   Duck Village
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Talk to Beecham, Salome, Lucia, and Dupa who are inside the Inn. After that,
    build up your fire magic skill using the Tutor Shop as you will need it later
    on. After doing all of that, rest if you want. Once you are done with that, go
    to the entrance of Duck Village. Commence Battle!
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Commence Battle #2
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Conditions for victory: Destroy enemy units.
    
    Conditions for defeat: Ally units are destroyed.
    
    This time, you can use the Lizard and Karaya clan units. Do not send any units
    out to get Sarah. Have everyone defend, and let the enemy attack you. If you
    get hurt, use Dupa's healing skills to heal them pretty good. Just wait a
    couple of turns, and some units from Le Buque will come. Also, the Flame
    Champion will pursue Sarah...
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Time for another boss fight. You fought that you were going to fight Sarah,
    right? Well, she isn't dumb. She has tons of "Harmonian Soldiers" protecting
    her which means that you have to kick their ass to get to Sarah. Here are
    the first set of "Harmonian Soldiers". This is why I said to build up your
    Flame Champions's Fire skill.
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Harmonian Soldiers
    Harmonian Soldiers
    Harmonian Soldiers
    Harmonian Soldiers
    Harmonian Soldiers
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Use Hugo's True Fire -> Explosion to kill all of the "Harmonian Soldiers" in
    one hit. If they don't die, have Alia defend for the whole time, and the
    others attack. The Harmonian Soldiers deal tons of damage. That is why I said
    to build up your Fire magic skill. Heal when nessecary, and you'll do fine.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    You'll fight them again. Use the same strategy as before. Then, you'll meet up
    with Sarah along with 5 Harmonian Soldiers...
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Harmonian Soldiers
    Harmonian Soldiers
    Harmonian Soldiers
    Harmonian Soldiers
    Harmonian Soldiers
    
    Sarah
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    Focus on the Harmonian Soldiers. Use the same strategy as before to take them
    out. Sarah will only heal, so you need to kill the Harmonian Soldiers in one
    hit (by using True Fire -> Explosion). You see, that is why I said to build up
    your Fire magic skill. Once all of the Harmonian Soldiers are dead, the battle
    will end.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    You'll be in Brass Castle.
    
    
                                   Brass Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Note: From here on, the main character is Chris. I will try and get the other
    differences, but this is the strategy for Chris's party. She is probably the
    worst choice for Flame Champion. The main strategy is the same, but sometimes
    you have to talk to someone you wouldn't normally with your other characters.
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Commence Battle #3
    - - - - - - - - - -
    
    This battle can be very hard. It is annoying, and the enemies are  powerful.
    The best thing to do is to stay on the castle, because there, the damage is
    reduced by 40%. Let the enemies come to you. Also, DO NOT lose that area that
    is shining White, the battle will be considered lost if you do.
    
    As always, try and spread your party out, I suggest not going 3 squares from
    where you normally start, because if you do  you will face more enemies that
    way. Don't let anyone die, as you need all the help you can get. Dont be
    afraid to run, as you just need to survive a long time in this battle. If
    your characters are on the Shining area, they will be healed, so try and keep
    your wounded party members there.
    
    Be patient, and dont go on a wild attacking spree. That will just en dup with
    your defeat.  
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Note: From here on, the main character is Chris. I will try and get the other
    differences, but this is the strategy for Chris's party. She is probably the
    worst choice for Flame Champion. The main strategy is the same, but sometimes
    you have to talk to someone you wouldn't normally with your other characters.
    
    After the battle, your party celebrates inside Brass Castle. Watch a few
    scenes, and head left, and back into the main castle. Head straight, and left
    near the end. In the area near the entrance to the inn, head up the stairs on
    the right. On the second floor hallway, head down, and enter the first door
    you come to on the right. There will be a conversation going on when you
    enter. Watch the scene, and when you can control your character again, exit
    the room the same way you entered, and head up. Go down the stairs to the
    right, and back into the first floor of the main castle. Head back into the
    center hall, and head up. Head left through the town, and exit Brass Castle
    totally. Your goal is Lake Castle.
                             
    
                                   Lake Castle
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Once you enter the castle, watch the movies, you will be able to name your
    Castle at this point. Call it whatever you want, I will refer to it as
    Homeland. When you can control your character again examine the bed. You can
    save and rest here for free. When you are done, exit the room through the door
    on the right wall. Back in the main room of the castle, head downstairs, and
    exit. Exit the castle, and prepare your party. Go to the world map. Your next
    goal is Great Hollow.
    
    Note: This is a GREAT time to build up your 108 Stars of Destiny. Since you
    have access to most areas of the world map, you can do almost anything. Look
    at the sub-quests and the Characters sections to see what you can do. Also,
    this is a great time to build up. You can go to the Flame Champions Hideaway,
    and fight enemies there. You can easily get to level 52 or so withing 5
    battles if you want to.  Also,   try and get a Pale Gate rune from the
    skeletons in Flame Champion Hideaway. Just keep reseting if you dont get one
    from the Skeletons. It will help a LOT in the next few major battles. Also,
    try and get Viki, as she will help a LOT while travelling.
    
    
                                   Great Hollow
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Entering Great Hollow, follow the path, and shortly, you will see a short
    scene. Ignore the man, and exit Great Hollow the same way you entered. Now,
    you head back to your Homeland.
    
    
                                   Homeland
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Once back home, head back to the main Castle, and enter it. Once inside, head
    left, and go back into the meeting room. It's the first room on the path to
    the left, and the same room you named your castle in. Once inside, you will
    watch a scene, and your goal will to then follow Jimba into the Highway.
    Remember to do your building before you follow him, as you will be entering
    a rather difficult area. Make sure to prepare your party, buy items, and do
    whatever you need before leaving. When you are done, go back into the Highway.
    
                               
                                   Ancient Highway
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    When you enter, ignore everything else, and head directly to the center of the
    area (where Yuber and Hugo once fought). There, you will watch a scene, and
    the door will open. Head through the door.
    
    Note: Try to have a Pale Gate rune going into this area. Without one, the
    bosses you face will be hell. To get one, go to the Flame Champion Hideaway,
    and look at the Skeletons there. If they have items, then you can do the
    trick. Keep reseting until one of the items you get is a Pale Gate rune. Do
    not save after if you dont have the item. Just reset. It may take a while, but
    it will be worth it.
    
    
                                   Cyndar Ruins
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
    Note: For those of you who have played the previous Suikoden games, you will
    somewhat know this name. The Cyndar in this game is considered a
    mistranslation. It should be Sindar. And you know what that is.
    
    When you enter this area, you will have three paths to choose from. First,
    save at the save point to the left, and then you want to go down the right 
    the direction, right) path. On the larger screen, head straight until you get
    to an intersection. At the intersection, take a right. Follow the next screen
    as it twists and turns. Keep going in this direction until you see a save
    point. SAVE HERE. When you are sure you are reasy, head foward and you will
    see a scene.

    Sarah
    
    Ghost Armor
    Ghost Armor
    
    Chimera
    Chimera
    - - - - - - 
    
    This battle can be really annoying. First rule of the thumb, DO NOT use all
    your big magics here. This means you should stick to lower level magics. Unless
    of course, you really need to heal and don't have  a Flowing Rune (so Kindness
    Drops is level 2 instead of 3).  Make sure to save at least 4 Heal alls (AKA
    Shield -> Great Blessing, and Water -> Kindness Drops) for your next battle.
    If you want to do things the easy way, have Estella (with a Pale Gate rune and
    skill) use the level 1 attack.  This should end the battle.  If it doesnt, then
    attack Sarah  normally, as she should be the only one left alive. If you have
    to do things the hard way, be prepared to make a long battle short, as if this
    drags on, you most likely wont win. Try to have Futch mounted on Bright, and
    you can do over 1,000 damage an attack. That should kill off the Chimeras fast,
    while your other party members can focus on  doing what they do best. As
    always, Sarah heals with Kindness Drops,  so you need to kill the Chimeras in
    one turn.  Try to up your defense with Earth spells.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, watch the scenes, and heal up.  Head down, and back onto the
    screen you fought Sarah on.  SAVE NOW, and even harder battle looms ahead.
    If you must, head back to a town, and heal up.  When you are ready, head back
    up the stairs.  On the icy screen, head straight, dodging the ruins on either
    side, and continue going onto the next screen. On this next screen, do the
    same thing, except heal before getting near the end, as a HORRIBLY evil boss
    is waiting.

    - - - - - - -
    
    This boss can easily be considered one of the hardest bosses in the game if
    you dont have the Pale Gate rune, and are able to use it. Without it, you WILL
    go through hell, no matter how good and built up your party is. There are seven
    targets, with the Water Dragon the main target. But to actually get to the
    water dragon, you have to kill off at least one or 2 of the Ice Pillars. Each
    pillar does from 100-200 damage with each attack. Meaning they can easily wip
    the floor with your characters in one round. And you also have to count the
    Water Dragons attack, which does around 200 or so to the entire party. I have
    seen my entire party wiped out in two turns with an A rank Water rune
    character, and an B+ Earth. Characters like Hugo mounted on  Fubar, and Futch
    mounted on Bright will make the battle easier, but still very difficult to
    survive. Even worse, is the fact that the Water Dragon can revive his Ice
    Pillars, making it longer, and more tedious for you.
    
    The best, and easiest way to win this battle is to have a Pale Gate rune
    attached to a character like Estella or Viki (or Joker, if he has  a head slot
    available). Then use the same strategy you used for Sarah. Use the level One
    spell from the rune on the Water Dragon to hit all of the Ice Pillars. This
    will kill off all 6 Ice Pillars in one hit (the first spell has an instant
    death chance) and do around 1,000  damage to the Water Dragon. Then you are
    free to attack the Dragon itself, he has a lot of HP, so it may take a while
    to kill him. Keep your HP high, probably about 200, and you can survive.
    Remember, he can revive his Ice Pillars though.
    
    If you want to do this battle the hard way, you are in for a long, and most
    likely battle you have to reset in 5+ times battle. The best way  to do it is
    to have a magic user with a Mother Earth rune casting the spell that gives
    immunity to magic spells once per character. Or up  your defense with an Earth
    rune. Then have Futch and Bright (mounted) and attack one of the Ice Pillars.
    Have your magic users use Fire  spells, as strong as you  can. Final Flame does
    a good amount of  damage. Once one or two Ice Pillars are out of the way, you
    have a  choice. Either keep the damage from the Ice Pillars, and go after the
    Water Dragon alone, or to kill off most of the other Ice Pillars. Killing the
    Water Dragon is the faster alternative, as you may not survive killing off all
    of the Ice PIllars. This battle is very  difficult, but it IS survivable, you
    just need a certain amount of luck.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, heal. Now, you can head up the stairs. On the next screen,
    head straight and continue onto the next screen. After 2 more straight screens,
    you will be shown a screen. At this point either Chris or Hugo will inherit
    the True Water Rune.

    • Chapter 5
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Chapter five begins where you can choose your character again. It doesnt matter
    whom you choose, as you will just be given control of  your Flame Champion.
    
    
                                   Homeland
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    You begin by watching a scene.  hen you are given a choice, choose to sleep to
    progress. Watch some more scens, and when you are given control of your
    Champion, head downstairs, and try to exit Homeland on  foot. You will then
    watch a scene involving Franz. Watch the longer  set of scenes.
    
    
    
    Geddoe
    ======
    
    You are now in control of Geddoe again (if he wasn't you're Flame Champion),
    but not for the rest of the game. You can do almost anything in the castle
    with Geddoe, but Viki will not teleport you anywhere, so you are forced to
    move on foot. You automatically exit the Homeland. You can re-enter when you
    want, and I sugeest you do so, to build up the party that you may not have
    built up after the Flame Champion Hideaway. If you didnt builkd them up after
    Flame Champion Hideaway, they should have around 1,000 Skill points, so use
    them all.
    
    Your goal is now Le Buque. Head all the way over there from Homeland. On
    mountain path you will probably have to fight a boss again, use all the spells
    you want, as you wil be able to heal in Le Buque. At the end of the area, you
    will watch a short scene, and be placed on the world map again.
    
    
                                   Le Buque
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Entering Le Buque, and watch a scene. Head up the path to the main town. Walk
    forward a bit, and another scene will play. Head straight over the mesh
    netting, and exaiming the door to the first house on the right, which is
    Iku's house. Enter the house, and go into the second  room of the house,
    where Geddoe and party talked to Iku before. After a scene, and your goal will
    be layed out for you. Make sure to stay the night at the inn if you are missing
    even a little magic.  Your goal  is Mount Senai.  Exit town, and  head there. 
    
    
                                   Mnt. Senai
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    When you enter, you will be presented with a short scene. You may know Senai by
    now, but I will give you directions anyway. Go left, and follow the path to the
    next screen. Head right down the planks, and continue straight. Head right when
    you can, and follow the path in one  direction some more. On the next screen,
    head across the second platform on the right, and continue straight, ignoring
    that side path (unless you want and dont have the doggie). On the next screen,
    head  down either of the platforms on the left, and enter the door to the
    shrine area. Head straight in this hall, and on the next screen, you will watch
    a scene.

    - - - - - -
    
    Like most of the battles with Sarah, Luc and Yuber, you are not required to win.
    Luckily, Yuber isnt here to kick your ass, so you  have a much better chance of
    survival normally. Sarah, as always, heals and uses water magic, and Luc uses
    wind and pale gate magic. Get sarah out of there first, as she can cause a lot
    of problems, even though Lucs attacks are stronger. The Salamanders are immune
    to Fire spells (or rather, the spells do 1 damage), so dont try to kill them
    with that. You can end the main problems of this battle in a single round if
    you use Geddoes True Lightning -> Thunder Storm and Jokers Fire -> Explosion 
    or any other strong fire spell). Queen may have a Wind rune (she is best at
    Wind magic, so naturally you would want to get her one), of so, have her use
    Wind -> The Shredding. Aila should start with using defensive earth spells on
    your party, and uing Shield -> Great Blessing to heal your party when needed.
    You get a Wind Magic Ring for winning this battle.

    After the battle, a long scene will play, and Geddoe will lose his True Rune
    (either Lightning or Fire). After that, watch some more scenes, and head right
    over the bridge, and exit the shrine area. Heal before, though. Here, you will
    watch a scene, and you are then required to fight Three (3) progressively
    harder battles with Ghost Armors, Salamanders, and Mirages. After these three
    battles, you are given a choice. MAKE SURE TO CHOOSE "We can't just run away!"
    THREE TIMES! If you don't, you lose the ability to gain three new party
    members. Choose that option 3 times, unless your party is really close to
    death. After the third battle, you will be shown a scene. When given the
    option, choose "Please help us!". This will then allow you to have Duke,
    Elaine, Gau, and Nicholas as 4 of the 108 Stars of Destiny. When you are back
    on the world map, re-enter Le Buque.
    
    
                                   Le Buque
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ  
    When you are back in Le Buque, enter the main town area again, and watch a long
    scene (you gotta love how Geddoe doesnt put up with shit). After this, you lose
    control of Geddoe once again, even if he is your Flame Champion.  
    
    =====
    Chris
    =====
    
    
                                   Homeland
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    You are now in control of Chris, even if she isnt your Flame Champion. Remember
    to up her skills, and her parties skills when you can go to a Skill shop. Watch
    a scene, and when you regain control of Chris, it looks like your destination
    is Vinay del Zexay. Why dont we take a short brake at Brass Castle though,
    first?
    
    Remember: Like Geddoe, you cant warp with Viki at this point. Viki will be
    tired, or just not able to warp your party at this point. So you are forced
    to walk wherever you want to go.
                                 
    
                                 Brass Castle
                                 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Ah, Brass Castle. Home, sweet home. Why not take a look around? Head right, and
    into the main town. Continue right, and and down through the castle. On the
    third screen, watch a scene, and your goal is now Alma Kinan. Head in that
    direction.
    
    
                                   Kaput Forest
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    When you enter Kaput forest, head right, and continue down the single path.
    Continue past the intersection, and when you are at the last intersection to
    Alma Kinan, a surprising scene will play, and you will be forced into another
    battle.  
    
    - - - -
    Sarah
    
    Azodess

    Azodess
    - - - -
    
    If you have fought the Azodsesses before, you know how annoying they can be.
    And with Sarah there, this battle can be a pain in the ass. Remember, like
    most Sarah battles, you dont have to win this, but since it is rather easy,
    why not try?  Sarah, as always, will heal herself and her party with water
    magic. She also attacks with the magic. The easiest way to win this battle
    is exactly the same way you won the last battle, the level 1 Pale Gate rune
    will slaughter the Azodesses, and severly harm Sarah. If you cant do that,
    make sure to kill off Azodesses as fast as you can, with any magic it takes,
    as you wont be needing it after this (or rather, there wont be any battles
    after this one). Remmeber that the Azodesses can silence your party, so it may
    be harder to heal this way. Protect your magic users with anti-silence guards,
    and have your strongest physical attackers go all out. Futch mounted on Bright
    helps this battle progress steadily, though it is possible to win without it.
    Sarah hasnt really gotten any stronger since your last encounter, and actually,
    this battle is much easier then the one in the Cyndar ruins. If you win, you
    get a rare Drain rune.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, watch a scene, and Chris' True Rune (Water of Fire) will be
    taken away. You then lose control of Chris' party.
    
    
    ====
    Hugo
    ====
    
    Hugo's scenario is like Chris' and Geddoes', you cant use Viki, even if he is
    your Champion. This is like a short chapter inside another chapter. Remember
    to build up the skills of Hugo and his party, and remember Fubar (Must.
    Resist. Urge. To. Make. Bad. Comment) and that Hugo can mount him.
    
    When you begin, watch a short scene, and dont worry about a party just yet. 
    When you can control Hugo, head to the exit of the Homeland on  foot. Watch a
    short scene, and exit the Homeland. Enter the neighboring village of Iksay.
    
    
                                   Iksay
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻ
    Look around Iksay village, and do whatever you need to. There are no scenes
    you need to trigger in this village. Just search around, and shop. When you
    are done, exit, and go back to your Homeland.
    
    
                                   Homeland
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    When you enter, and you will be automatically shown a scene. You are then
    prompted to choose a party. I suggest Fubar with Hugo at least, as one mounted
    pair will be a lot better then anything else. Any other characters are your
    own choice, there wont be a boss battle, so you dont have to worry about that.
    Hugo then gets back on his kick ass Zebra-Horsie, and your goal is Brass
    Caslte. Remember to build up your characters at this point.
    
    
                                   Brass Castle  
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    
    When you enter, you will automatically watch a scene. Head right, and enter
    the town. The complete lack of people is disturbing. HEY! Is that shop left
    unattended? And, wasnt Jeane's shop that rune shop? There may be something
    left of her! Lets go and-er...Anyways, continue right,and enter the main
    castle. Head down, and enter the second part of town. There are people in
    this area, so dont let your fantasies get ahead of you just yet. Power up
    anything you need to, and heal before you go through the door to the opposite
    side of Brass Castle.
    
    Once here, you notice the chaos. You are then attacked by a set of 5 Harmonian
    soldiers. They arent that tough, especially if Hugo is mounted on Fubar. Kill
    them physically, and they wont be too tough. After this, you will see a scene,
    and are then required to fight two more sets of Harmonian soldiers. This is a
    great time to level up your low level characters.
    
    After these battles, Hugo will lose his True Rune (which can be any of the
    three runes), and an awesome movie will then commence. After the movies, you
    will be given a set of three choices that you always get before a major
    battle. I suggest you go and save before entering this  battle, as people can
    die (permanently!). Prepare your battle parties, and your choices, and prepare
    for a huge war.
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Commence Battle #1
    
    Conditions for Victory:
    Destroy Yubers Unit
    
    Conditions for Defeat:
    Successors unit is destroyed
    
    Take note that the first thing you should not allow to happen is let any of
    your parties die. If they do, there is a chance that a character can die
    off, permanently, leaving you with less then 108 Stars, and you then wont be
    able to see the special secret at the end  of the game. Don't be afraid to
    reset, as this battle can be a pain. Let Yubers Units come to you, as you are
    severly outnumbered when you  being this battle. If Yuber attacks any party,
    make sure that you run from the battle on the first turn. The best way to harm
    Yubers unit is by Lightning and Fire skills, so save those for him. The main
    goal of the battle is to survive for the first few turns. In 3 turns, Sasarai
    will come into the battle. He will not attack anyone though, and it is highly
    doubtful your party is over to that side of the battlefield by now, anyways.
    Try and stay on the Castle, or on the Plains so your party will be healed after
    each round. A few rounds after Sasarai joins, then a short scene will play,
    and he will join your party for the battle. Now your goal is to kill off
    everyone and everything. Killing Yubers unit off first will end the battle,
    but it is a lot easier to kill all of the enemies before going after him.
    Remmeber not to waste Sasarai's or any other characters Spells on the normal
    enemies, and use them on Yuber. When Yuber gets to half health, the spells wont
    effect him anymore. You are then required to attack him physically (prepare
    for ouchies). Have a strong party, one with a "Tank" (one that doesnt take
    damage from physical attacks well, like Nicholas, Ceceil, Leo and a built up
    Fred). Remember that Yuber has amazing dodge capabilities, so it may take a
    long time to kill him. You get a Flowing Rune for winning this battle.

    =========
    Successor

                                   Homeland
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    After the battle, you are automatically brought back to your Homeland, and
    changed back into the control of your main character. You will watch some
    scenes, and are given characters 102-104. During this scene, you will have
    the ability to start battle, but befoe you do, MAKE  ABSOLUTELY SURE YOU ARE
    READY!.
    
    Being ready means having 104 of the 108 Stars of Destiny (dont worry about the
    other 4, you'll get them automatically). It also means preparing 3 main
    parties. Yes, you heard me, three parties. Level up in the Flame Champion
    Hideaway if needed, and build up all these characters to the nest you can.
    Play around, and do everything else you need. The day of destiny will soon
    arive! Remember to only go if you have 104 characters of the 108 (unless of
    course you dont want the best secret ever). Lastly, dont remove the skills
    of magic from your Flame Champion.
    
    When you are ready, go into the meeting room, and talk to everyone. Then
    choose to get going and finish this.
    
    
                                   Ceremonial Site
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The Ceremonial Site is the location of the final battle. But befoere you can
    get in, you must deal with Yuber, Sarah, and their hordes of monsters.
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Commence Battle #2
    
    Conditions for Victory:
    Destroy Yubers Unit
    
    Conditions for Defeat:
    Successors Unit is destroyed
    
    This is the hardest major battle in the game. Not only do you have to worry
    about the extreme amount of monsters, but you have to worry about keeping your
    party members alive, as just like the last battle, they can die permanently.
    The first rule of this battle: It WILL take a long time. No matter how strong
    you are, this battle will be very long. Start by having your characters slowly
    move upwards, going the opposite direction of Yuber. Try to head towards
    Sarah, as getting rid of her can make this battle easier. The enemies in this
    battle are strong, but nothing you didn't face in the last major battle. When
    you reach Sarah, be warned. She has 1-hit-kill with her killer Final Flame
    spell. Just attack her as much as possible with magic before you attack her
    normally, and before going after her, try and get her Water rune skill down a
    bit, so you dont waste all that damage and she heals it when she is close to
    death. To get the skill down to zero, let the enemies run from you when they
    are close to defeat, and she will most likely heal them. Remember to run when
    you get into battle with Yubers unit, as he is still as strong, if not stronger
    then before, and can easily wipe the floor with your party.
    
    The reason you want to go after Sarah's unit is because once hers is gone, 80%
    of the monsters will disappear with her, and wont come back. Then you can go
    after Yuber with whatever you want. Kill him like you do normally, just
    remember to use magic on him first, and try to have a healthy party when going
    at it.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, make sure you don't save until you are positive that you
    don't have any dead party members (My biggest mistake the first time through
    the game was getting all these characters, and then saving, only to notice that
    one died in that last battle.  Grrr). You will watch a scene, and be given
    control of the holder of the True Lightning Rune; either Geddoe or Hugo. The
    character is then given the ability to pick a party. He can alsoleave the
    Ceremonial site and go back to where ever he/she wants, except remember the
    deadline for the 108 Stars is up. And lastly, if you want, you can go look at
    the Tablet of Stars,as you have just gotten your last 4 characters, but only if
    you had 104 alive Stars before that last battle.
    
    Party consideration is a major effect here. Since you have to balance your
    parties, you can be in trouble. If you had one main party throughout the
    game, then you can be in trouble. Let Hugo have Fubar (if he isnt your flame
    Champion), and have Futch and Bright with the True Lightning character. Have
    Franz and Ruby with your other character. If Hugo is your champion, have
    Franz with Chris, and Futch with Geddoe. If Chris is your Champion, have
    Futch with Geddoe, and Fubar with Hugo. The same with Geddoe. Don't let the
    Champion have a mounted character, as he wont need it.
    
    Note: There are some special scenes you can see if you choose a party of
    characters that the Inheriters of the True Runes start with. Hugo has to have
    Fubar and St. Joe in his party, and everyone else has to have their base
    characters (the ones that were main characters  throughout their story).
    These are some of the best scenes in the game, and some of them are certainly
    the most heartwarming.
    
    
    ==============
    True Lightning
    ==============
    
    The best type of party for this area is a a party of high HP "Tanks". Futch
    mounted on Bright is also very useful. The enemies here are some of the
    hardest sets in the game, so be warned. It's best to run if you  have to fight
    more then 2 Azodesses at once, as they can seriously decimate you, more then
    the other enemies.
    
    When you control the character going to True Lightning, save (remember only
    if you know that everyone is alive!), and go through the door on the top
    right corner of the main room. Watch a short scene (this will  be a special
    scene if you chose a party from the earlier note.), and go straight. Follow
    the path, and go through the door at the end. In this next room, head over
    the platform and go to the next screen. Continue following the single path,
    and you will eventually get to the last door at the end of the third screen.
    Heal before going into it, and beware. Enter the door, and head straight.
    Watch a scene, and you will be attacked.
    
    - - - - -
    Yuber
    
    Skeleton
    Skeleton
    Skeleton
    
    Hellsteed
    - - - - -
    
    Alright, this is one big ouchie. Yuber is capable of attacking a single
    character up to 5 times in a row, for around 100-200 damage each time.
    This will easily slaughter even the strongest mounted characters. The
    Hellsteed is another strong physical attacker which does around 150 damage
    per attack, and can attack twice. You have faced Skeletons before, these are
    just powered up ones.
    
    To win this battle cleanly, you have to get rid of the monsters within
    the first 2 turns. This means you have to go all out, and slaughter everything
    in sight, and do it quickly. Kill off the Skeletons first, as they are the
    easiest to kill. You should be able to kill them all within two turns. Then
    set your sights on the Hellsteed. One round of attacks bu all your attackers
    against him should kill him. Make sure to heal if anyone gets under 300 HP.
    
    When Yuber is alone, then you have an easier time, but it will still be
    difficult. He goes berserk easily, and then does around 200 damage with each
    attack, slaughtering everyone in his way. Even if you have  gotten to this
    point, you arent safe, and can still be killed just as easily as you could
    normally. In fact, near death, a berserk Yuber can  do 300 damage to even the
    strongest tanks.
    
    This is one of the hardest battles in the game, so dont worry if you have to
    reset a few times. It's only natural, especially if its your first time 
    hrough.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    Remember that Yuber has a high physical evasion, and counters a lot of your
    physical attacks, so spells are the safest way to win this battle. When you are
    done, your character reclaims his True Lightning Rune, and you are
    automatically given control of another character.
    
    
    ==========
    True Water
    ==========
    
    Either Chris or Hugo will be your starting character for this area. Remember
    not to get into too many battles, as the boss will be hell if you do.
    
    This party needs to be stronger, dont show mercy, because the last party (the
    next one) doesnt really need strong characters. So use your strongest
    characters as much as you can.  
    
    Choose your party, MAKE SURE YOU SAVE!, and head through the door on the top
    left corner of the main hall. After a scene, head straight, following the
    path onto the next screen. On the second screen, head  over the platform,
    and onto the third screen. On the third, follow the path, and near the end,
    heal. Head onto the fourth screen, watch a scene, and prepare for battle. 
    A long, and hard battle that will make you mad enough to throw your controller
    down at times.
    
    - - - - - -
    Sarah
    
    Azodess
    Azodess
    
    Horrobeast
    Horrobeast
    - - - - - -
    
    The Azodesses present the main problem of this battle. You have fought them
    many times before, but unlike previous monster/character battles, the monsters
    here dont die from the first level Pale Gate. The Horrobeasts have a hell of a
    lot of HP, so it will take a while to kill them. Their attacks do about
    150 damage, or 100 damage too all your party members, so you need either
    Shield -> Great Blessing, or Water -> Kindness Drops for this battle. And you
    will probably need to do it once a round, and SHOULD do it once a round. Sarah
    will attack a lot more often in this battle, then she did in previous battles.
    Her attack does around 100-200 damage to the entire party, and is water
    elemental. The Azodesses are powered up, but are still basically the same as
    before.
    
    Kill off the Azodesses first, as they are the fastest, and can silence your
    entire party, cutting off your healing. Kill them off with whatever means
    necissary. The best way to do it is by strong physical attacks, as they
    take more damage physically then magically. The Horrobeasts aren't damaged
    from Fire Magic, so use whatever means you  need to kill them. Since they
    are so slow, they are the least threat of the battle, and should be killed
    near last.
    
    As always, Sarah heals. But like I said before, she attacks more. Try to kill
    off all the enemies fast to keep her from healing them. This battle can be even
    harder thenm the Yuber battle, because the enemies target your entire party,
    not just one character, like Yuber. Keep your HP way up, and be prepared to
    die multiple times before winning this battle.
    
    The best way to actuallty defend yourself in this battle in the Mother Earth
    Rune and its immunity to magic spells for the entire party. If Hugo is your
    Water Rune character, he will be fast with the Earth  magic, so you may want
    to use him for defense if he is in your party. The immunity to spells will
    save your ass a LOT. Have a character with a good water spell, and a Flowing
    Rune so you can heal fast. Try not to use Fire magic, and work with whatever
    else you need. Be patient, it is a little bit of luck.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
    
    After the battle, you are automatically given control of another character.
    
    =========
    True Fire
    =========
    
    This is by far the easiest of the paths, because there is no hugely impossible
    boss battle to fight here. Choose your party, it doesnt have to be uber, just
    a party you are able to survive with.
    
    When you begin, save your game, and go through the center door of the top
    floor. Watch a scene, and follow the paths straight until the second screen.
    Head over the platform, and onto the next screen. Follow the path as it "U's",
    onto the next screen. On the last screen, follow the path, and save your game.
    Head toward the center of the room, and a scene will play, and your character
    will now get his or her True Fire Rune back. Watch the long scene, and go
    through the newely opened door. Watch another scene, and you are given an
    option to choose party members. At this point, Chris, Hugo, and Geddoe can all
    be in the same party. You can also use Sasarai, and his True Earth Rune.
    
    The final battle awaits beyond that last door.Your party choice is really your
    own, but I usually use Geddoe, Chris, Hugo and Sasari, yes, they have the True
    Runes, and yes that is shallow, but so what? Sasari is great at ALL forms of
    magic, and Chris will be a good healer throughout the battle. Geddoe will be
    good at offense once you get one problem out of the way, and Hugo just kicks
    ass all around. For my last two characters, I usually have Futch mounted on
    Bright. They are almost indestructable. Its really your own personal opinion
    though. Some may prefer Estella to Sasarai, or anything else on that matter.
    
    Going through the door, watch a long scene, and you arer foced into some odd
    minor battles. Just use physical attacks, and they should die rather quickly.
    After this, you are given the chance to back off, or don't. You can back off,
    and prepare your party, in fact, it is actually advised to do this. When you
    are absolutely sure you are ready, then choose to approach him. Watch more
    scenes, and the final battle will begin.
    
    - - - - - - - - -
    Wind Rancor
    
    Fire Crystal
    
    Lightning Crystal
    
    Earth Cryatal
    
    Water Crystal
    - - - - - - - - -
    
    Alright, now THIS is a confusing battle. First off, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT
    use offensive magic! That is, until you destroy the elemental crystal of that
    power. So don't use Lightning spells until the  Lightning Crytal is destroyed.
    The Wind Rancor can attack up to 3 times a round, and can use whatever of the
    Crystals are alive to attack, or heal. Earth supports, Lightning attacks,
    Fire attacks, and Water heals.
    
    The way to finish the batle fastest is to go for the Lughtning Crystal first.
    This may seem weird, but the faster thats gone, the more you can go after the
    most annoying target: The Water Crystal. The Water Crystal is the healer,
    and can completely revive any of the other Crystals. Once you kill off the
    Lightning Crystal, then go straight for the Water Crystal. Use as strong as
    attacks that you have, and remember that you can now use Lightning spells.
    In a round or two, the Water Crystal will revive the Lightning Crystal, putting
    you back at square one. But the damage the Water Crystal recieved will still 
    exist, so you only need to kill off the Lightning Crystal again, to get to the
    Water Crystal. You should be able to kill it now if you didn't before. After
    the Water Crystal is dead, the battle becomes MUCH easier. After the Water
    Crystal is dead, you are capable of killing everything else off.
    
    Remember, don't use the elemental attack spell against the enemies unless the
    Crystal of the same element is dead, or else the spell will  be forced back
    onto your party. Keep your HP over 300 with all party  members, and heal
    with Water (Flowing, True Water) -> Kindness Drops once a round. If you
    have a character with a Shield Rune, use Great Blessing.
    
    Once the Crystals are dead, you have a much better time. The Wing Rancor can
    then only attack twice a round, (at max). Just atack with whatever you find
    necessary at this point, because he is not going to last too long.

    Now, the game will be over. If you have all of the 108 Stars Of Destiny, you'll
    get to play as Luc. NOTE: Me or Cyril didn't add Luc's POV to our FAQ because
    it is 100% story based. You can't level up or explore. IT IS STORY BASED SO
    WRITING A WALKTHROUGH FOR IT IS 100% USELESS.

    This battle is hard as hell. Just keep attacking it. Watch out for it's poison
    attack. When someone gets poisoned, immediatley cure them as you don't want
    them to lose 20 HP per turn. Heal people when needed. Having Heavy Damage, and
    Swing maxed out is very good in this battle. Good luck!

    unit intercept the attack by the enemy. You should win. Beecham will withdraw.
    Have Borus attack the same unit as Leo. Borus should win. Make Percival group
    attack the Lizards in front of him. Let Chris attack clan right beneath here.
    Chris should win. You just won a major victory.

    Focus all your attacks on Shiba as the battle will end when he dies. If you
    had your Swing, and Armor Protect in the ranges of B's, it should be pretty
    easy. The other reason to go after Shiba first is that he has pretty strong
    attacks out of his clan. He's really strong, but he should go down in a
    couple of turns. I hope that helps.

    Just focus on Shiba as he inflicts the most damage. Besides, your party is
    pretty weak since you don't have Leo, Borus, and all the others with you. It's
    just common sense to go after him first. Right now, Nash is in your party. So,
    when you get hurt, DO NOT use healing items. Instead, use Nash's Rune power
    called "Kindness Drops". They heal tons of HP, and cure all status's. I hope
    that strategy works.

    Before starting this battle, make sure everyone is in the correct formation
    according to the level of defense. Put the highest in front, and so on. Start
    attacking it, but heal when you can. You don't want anyone to die. It doesn't
    really matter if you die or not because this mini-boss gives out very little
    skill points. Anyways...Do not use any Rune magic. Just focus on attacking it.
    If you had everyones' Heavy Damage, Armor Protect, and Swing skills maxed out
    (which means having them at an A), it should go down in little or no time.
    Keep attacking it, and it should die. Good luck!

    little damage to you. After Franz, and Mntrlegnr go down, get rid of Ruby,
    and the Montor. They don't do a lot of damage, but if you were hurt from
    Franz or Mntrlegnr, heal right away. After while, you should win.

    Attack it, and put it to sleep with the Wind Rune. You need to do that

    don't have a high MAG DEF except Hugo. His is not that high. Anyways...You
    need to keep everyone alive if you want the EXP and Skill Points. Keep putting
    it to sleep so it can't attack. If you run out of the sleep attack and the
    monster is still not dead, attack with Hugo and Fubar. Have the rest defend.

    an archer. Take out Leo as fast as you can. He is one of the best tanks in
    the game. His defense is very high, and so is his HP, so just keep pounding
    on him. You can't afford to lose this battle. Heal when nessecary. When Leo
    is gone, go after Roland. He won't do much damage to you because if you are
    close to him, his damage greatly decreases. His defense is very weak, and he
    has kinda high HP. When he is gone, use the sleep magic on the remaining
    Zexen Knights, and attack like crazy. Heal when needed again. I hope that

    and take out the Montors first. Also, use Hallec's and Fubar's combo attack
    to hurt all of the enemies. When the enemies wake up, use the sleep magic
    again. Continue using it. Don't let them stay awake for more then one turn.
    Also, heal when needed. When you run out of the sleep magic, attack like
    crazy. Do not let no one die as this battle gives out a lot of Skill Points.
    The Montor Legionnaire's do about the same damage as the Harmonia Soldiers.
    Their defense is low, and their HP is kinda high. The Montor's defense and
    HP are pretty high. I hope that helps.

    happens twice, you will lose the match. Just hope that she does not do
    that attack. Instead of having each character attack Chris, use their
    combo attack. It will do a lot of damage. You can also use Geddoe's Lightning
    Rune, but it is very weak since you couldn't level up his Lightning Magic
    Skill (There is no Skill teachers yet). Now, heal when needed. You should be
    able to win if Chris does not do that water attack. After a while, Chris will
    become Berserk which means she'll do tons of damage. I hope that helps.

    Use Ace and Joker's combo attack to hurt all of the enemies. The Karaya

    the Karaya Fighters first. The good thing is, they have low HP. You can
    use Geddoe's Lightning Rune but it is weak because you can't level up his
    lightning magic yet. Instead, use your regular attacks. When the fighters are
    gone, use the entire group's combo attack on Alia. It should weaken her
    pretty badly. If she doesn't die, attack her again. When you are going to
    attack her, the characters are going to go up to her. That is good, because
    the closer you are, the less damage she will do. Heal when neeeded. I hope
    that helps.

    Do not use the Mercenary B combo attack because there is only one enemy.
    The Blue Mantix will do two attacks. One that targets one person, and another
    that hurts everyone. Be aware though, both attacks are magical so heal when
    needed. The attack that hurts everyone does a lot of damage compared to the
    single target one. This mini-boss has a lot of HP, so...It will take a while
    to take it down. Now is a good time to use the lightning rune that Geddoe
    has. Use the strongest attack that you got. If you are having a hard time
    hurting the boss, use Alia's Shield Rune -> Battle Oath to make your
    characters berserk (DMG x 1.5). Also, use Alia's Earth rune to heal your
    comrades. Now, good luck!

    The Right Head uses a fire attack that hurts anyone that is close to it. The
    Left Head does a very strong rune attack that hurts everyone no matter where
    they are. Use the Double Tusk rune on the left head. Use Alia's Shield ->
    Battle Oath to make your party members berserk (DMG x 1.5). Keep using that
    until at least 4/6 people in your party are berserk. Perferably Joker, Ace,
    Geddoe, and Queen. Have everyone else go after the Left Head. The reason you
    are focusing on the Left Head is because it will heal it's comrades, so it is
    in best interest to take it out first. If you are hurt, use Alia's Earth
    Ruen to heal you. You need to attack with as many people as you have, so don't
    use items unless you are out of the earth magic. Once the Left Head is gone,
    focus on the Right Head. Since most of your party members are berserk, it
    should go down in a while. When that is gone, use Geddoe's strongest
    lightning attacks on the Twin Snake. Continue healing when needed, and you
    should do fine.

    Use Ace and Joker's combo attack to hurt everyone. Franz and Ruby will the
    most damage. First, get rid of the Mantor Legionnaire's. Use Alia's Shield ->
    Battle Oath to make your party members berserk. When both Mantor Legionnaire's
    are dead, go after the Mantors. Continue using Ace and Joker's combo attack
    when you can. The Mantors don't do a lot of damage but they still pose a
    threat. Heal when needed. When both Mantor's are gone, use Geddoe's strongest
    attack to get rid of Franz. Continue healing your comrades. When Franz is
    gone, use your entire party's combo attack to hurt it badly. It has pretty
    high defense so it will take a while to take it down. Continue using Geddoe's
    lightning rune to hurt it badly. I hope that helps.

    boar has tons of HP, does a lot of damage, and has a high defense. That is why
    you have to keep using that combo attack. Also, that is why I said to upgrade
    your weapons. Anyways, heal when needed, and you should do fine. If a
    character dies, reset the game. This boss gives out a lot of EXP and skill
    points so you need to keep each character alive. That is all.

    Marshalls have high attack power, but low defense. The should all die in as
    little as 5 turns. Also, heal when needed. You don't want your party members

    This is an optional battle that you do not have to win. To actually  win this
    battle, you have to be quite skilled. Your level should be at least 43 (I had
    levels around 48, and won it in 2 rounds), and you should have Geddoe's
    Lightning skill maxed out. Chris or Hugo should also have a Water Rune
    attached. Remeber to keep that formation from earlier, it will allow you to
    heal easiest. Lastly, you have to have not used up all your most powerful
    magic in the last battle.  If you did, this will be virtually impossible to
    win. The best place to get the requirments is leaving Flame Champion Hideaway
    and fighting in the forests near Alma Kinan (Kaput Forest). You may get into a
    battle with 2 large, blue crabs. Its one of those mini boss battles. This
    battle alone should net you with 3-4 levels. If you can get to Alma Kinan,
    then go, as they have all the things you need to create and ideal party.
    
    In the battle itself, have Geddoe start out with his True Lightning -> Thunder
    Storm to do about 1,000-1,200 damage to ALL the enemies on screen. This will
    kill off the Chimeras, and will put Sarah and the Masked Bishop into critical
    zone. Remember to use the Water Rune on whatever character it is equipped on,
    to heal on the first turn. On the second turn, Sarah will most likely heal
    herself and her party, also use this turn to continue keeping yourself
    healthy. On the second turn, have Geddoe use that same spell again, this
    should kill off the Masked Bishop, and maybe Yuber if he wasnt hit by the
    Kindness Drops. Have Chris or Hugo attack Sarah, and if you are lucky, the
    battle will be over in 2 rounds. If it isnt over, then attack Yuber with the
    strongest magic you have, and Sarah with physical attacks.  Attacking Yuber
    physically is asking for destruction.
    
    one last note: You may want to have each character: Chris, Hugo and Geddoe in
    a different section, so you can cast 3 spells a turn, one healing, and two
    attacking. It will be harder to heal with Kindness Drops, though.

    couple of turns, and some units from Le Buque will come. Also, the Flame

    This battle can be very hard. It is annoying, and the enemies are  powerful.
    The best thing to do is to stay on the castle, because there, the damage is
    reduced by 40%. Let the enemies come to you. Also, DO NOT lose that area that
    is shining White, the battle will be considered lost if you do.
    
    As always, try and spread your party out, I suggest not going 3 squares from
    where you normally start, because if you do  you will face more enemies that
    way. Don't let anyone die, as you need all the help you can get. Dont be
    afraid to run, as you just need to survive a long time in this battle. If
    your characters are on the Shining area, they will be healed, so try and keep
    your wounded party members there.
    
    Be patient, and dont go on a wild attacking spree. That will just en dup with
    your defeat.

    This battle can be really annoying. First rule of the thumb, DO NOT use all
    your big magics here. This means you should stick to lower level magics. Unless
    of course, you really need to heal and don't have  a Flowing Rune (so Kindness
    Drops is level 2 instead of 3).  Make sure to save at least 4 Heal alls (AKA
    Shield -> Great Blessing, and Water -> Kindness Drops) for your next battle.
    If you want to do things the easy way, have Estella (with a Pale Gate rune and
    skill) use the level 1 attack.  This should end the battle.  If it doesnt, then
    attack Sarah  normally, as she should be the only one left alive. If you have
    to do things the hard way, be prepared to make a long battle short, as if this
    drags on, you most likely wont win. Try to have Futch mounted on Bright, and
    you can do over 1,000 damage an attack. That should kill off the Chimeras fast,
    while your other party members can focus on  doing what they do best. As
    always, Sarah heals with Kindness Drops,  so you need to kill the Chimeras in
    one turn.  Try to up your defense with Earth spells.

    This boss can easily be considered one of the hardest bosses in the game if
    you dont have the Pale Gate rune, and are able to use it. Without it, you WILL
    go through hell, no matter how good and built up your party is. There are seven
    targets, with the Water Dragon the main target. But to actually get to the
    water dragon, you have to kill off at least one or 2 of the Ice Pillars. Each
    pillar does from 100-200 damage with each attack. Meaning they can easily wip
    the floor with your characters in one round. And you also have to count the
    Water Dragons attack, which does around 200 or so to the entire party. I have
    seen my entire party wiped out in two turns with an A rank Water rune
    character, and an B+ Earth. Characters like Hugo mounted on  Fubar, and Futch
    mounted on Bright will make the battle easier, but still very difficult to
    survive. Even worse, is the fact that the Water Dragon can revive his Ice
    Pillars, making it longer, and more tedious for you.
    
    The best, and easiest way to win this battle is to have a Pale Gate rune
    attached to a character like Estella or Viki (or Joker, if he has  a head slot
    available). Then use the same strategy you used for Sarah. Use the level One
    spell from the rune on the Water Dragon to hit all of the Ice Pillars. This
    will kill off all 6 Ice Pillars in one hit (the first spell has an instant
    death chance) and do around 1,000  damage to the Water Dragon. Then you are
    free to attack the Dragon itself, he has a lot of HP, so it may take a while
    to kill him. Keep your HP high, probably about 200, and you can survive.
    Remember, he can revive his Ice Pillars though.
    
    If you want to do this battle the hard way, you are in for a long, and most
    likely battle you have to reset in 5+ times battle. The best way  to do it is
    to have a magic user with a Mother Earth rune casting the spell that gives
    immunity to magic spells once per character. Or up  your defense with an Earth
    rune. Then have Futch and Bright (mounted) and attack one of the Ice Pillars.
    Have your magic users use Fire  spells, as strong as you  can. Final Flame does
    a good amount of  damage. Once one or two Ice Pillars are out of the way, you
    have a  choice. Either keep the damage from the Ice Pillars, and go after the
    Water Dragon alone, or to kill off most of the other Ice Pillars. Killing the
    Water Dragon is the faster alternative, as you may not survive killing off all
    of the Ice PIllars. This battle is very  difficult, but it IS survivable, you
    just need a certain amount of luck.

    Like most of the battles with Sarah, Luc and Yuber, you are not required to win.
    Luckily, Yuber isnt here to kick your ass, so you  have a much better chance of
    survival normally. Sarah, as always, heals and uses water magic, and Luc uses
    wind and pale gate magic. Get sarah out of there first, as she can cause a lot
    of problems, even though Lucs attacks are stronger. The Salamanders are immune
    to Fire spells (or rather, the spells do 1 damage), so dont try to kill them
    with that. You can end the main problems of this battle in a single round if
    you use Geddoes True Lightning -> Thunder Storm and Jokers Fire -> Explosion 
    or any other strong fire spell). Queen may have a Wind rune (she is best at
    Wind magic, so naturally you would want to get her one), of so, have her use
    Wind -> The Shredding. Aila should start with using defensive earth spells on
    your party, and uing Shield -> Great Blessing to heal your party when needed.
    You get a Wind Magic Ring for winning this battle.

    If you have fought the Azodsesses before, you know how annoying they can be.
    And with Sarah there, this battle can be a pain in the ass. Remember, like
    most Sarah battles, you dont have to win this, but since it is rather easy,
    why not try?  Sarah, as always, will heal herself and her party with water
    magic. She also attacks with the magic. The easiest way to win this battle
    is exactly the same way you won the last battle, the level 1 Pale Gate rune
    will slaughter the Azodesses, and severly harm Sarah. If you cant do that,
    make sure to kill off Azodesses as fast as you can, with any magic it takes,
    as you wont be needing it after this (or rather, there wont be any battles
    after this one). Remmeber that the Azodesses can silence your party, so it may
    be harder to heal this way. Protect your magic users with anti-silence guards,
    and have your strongest physical attackers go all out. Futch mounted on Bright
    helps this battle progress steadily, though it is possible to win without it.
    Sarah hasnt really gotten any stronger since your last encounter, and actually,
    this battle is much easier then the one in the Cyndar ruins. If you win, you
    get a rare Drain rune.

    Conditions for Defeat:

    Take note that the first thing you should not allow to happen is let any of
    your parties die. If they do, there is a chance that a character can die
    off, permanently, leaving you with less then 108 Stars, and you then wont be
    able to see the special secret at the end  of the game. Don't be afraid to
    reset, as this battle can be a pain. Let Yubers Units come to you, as you are
    severly outnumbered when you  being this battle. If Yuber attacks any party,
    make sure that you run from the battle on the first turn. The best way to harm
    Yubers unit is by Lightning and Fire skills, so save those for him. The main
    goal of the battle is to survive for the first few turns. In 3 turns, Sasarai
    will come into the battle. He will not attack anyone though, and it is highly
    doubtful your party is over to that side of the battlefield by now, anyways.
    Try and stay on the Castle, or on the Plains so your party will be healed after
    each round. A few rounds after Sasarai joins, then a short scene will play,
    and he will join your party for the battle. Now your goal is to kill off
    everyone and everything. Killing Yubers unit off first will end the battle,
    but it is a lot easier to kill all of the enemies before going after him.
    Remmeber not to waste Sasarai's or any other characters Spells on the normal
    enemies, and use them on Yuber. When Yuber gets to half health, the spells wont
    effect him anymore. You are then required to attack him physically (prepare
    for ouchies). Have a strong party, one with a "Tank" (one that doesnt take
    damage from physical attacks well, like Nicholas, Ceceil, Leo and a built up
    Fred). Remember that Yuber has amazing dodge capabilities, so it may take a
    long time to kill him. You get a Flowing Rune for winning this battle.

    Commence Battle #2
    
    Conditions for Victory:
    Destroy Yubers Unit
    
    Conditions for Defeat:
    Successors Unit is destroyed
    
    This is the hardest major battle in the game. Not only do you have to worry
    about the extreme amount of monsters, but you have to worry about keeping your
    party members alive, as just like the last battle, they can die permanently.
    The first rule of this battle: It WILL take a long time. No matter how strong
    you are, this battle will be very long. Start by having your characters slowly
    move upwards, going the opposite direction of Yuber. Try to head towards
    Sarah, as getting rid of her can make this battle easier. The enemies in this
    battle are strong, but nothing you didn't face in the last major battle. When
    you reach Sarah, be warned. She has 1-hit-kill with her killer Final Flame
    spell. Just attack her as much as possible with magic before you attack her
    normally, and before going after her, try and get her Water rune skill down a
    bit, so you dont waste all that damage and she heals it when she is close to
    death. To get the skill down to zero, let the enemies run from you when they
    are close to defeat, and she will most likely heal them. Remember to run when
    you get into battle with Yubers unit, as he is still as strong, if not stronger
    then before, and can easily wipe the floor with your party.
    
    The reason you want to go after Sarah's unit is because once hers is gone, 80%
    of the monsters will disappear with her, and wont come back. Then you can go
    after Yuber with whatever you want. Kill him like you do normally, just
    remember to use magic on him first, and try to have a healthy party when going
    at it.

    - - - - -
    Yuber
    
    Skeleton
    Skeleton
    Skeleton
    
    Hellsteed
    - - - - -
    
    Alright, this is one big ouchie. Yuber is capable of attacking a single
    character up to 5 times in a row, for around 100-200 damage each time.
    This will easily slaughter even the strongest mounted characters. The
    Hellsteed is another strong physical attacker which does around 150 damage
    per attack, and can attack twice. You have faced Skeletons before, these are
    just powered up ones.
    
    To win this battle cleanly, you have to get rid of the monsters within
    the first 2 turns. This means you have to go all out, and slaughter everything
    in sight, and do it quickly. Kill off the Skeletons first, as they are the
    easiest to kill. You should be able to kill them all within two turns. Then
    set your sights on the Hellsteed. One round of attacks bu all your attackers
    against him should kill him. Make sure to heal if anyone gets under 300 HP.
    
    When Yuber is alone, then you have an easier time, but it will still be
    difficult. He goes berserk easily, and then does around 200 damage with each
    attack, slaughtering everyone in his way. Even if you have  gotten to this
    point, you arent safe, and can still be killed just as easily as you could
    normally. In fact, near death, a berserk Yuber can  do 300 damage to even the
    strongest tanks.
    
    This is one of the hardest battles in the game, so dont worry if you have to
    reset a few times. It's only natural, especially if its your first time 
    hrough.

    - - - - - -
    Sarah
    
    Azodess
    Azodess
    
    Horrobeast
    Horrobeast
    - - - - - -
    
    The Azodesses present the main problem of this battle. You have fought them
    many times before, but unlike previous monster/character battles, the monsters
    here dont die from the first level Pale Gate. The Horrobeasts have a hell of a
    lot of HP, so it will take a while to kill them. Their attacks do about
    150 damage, or 100 damage too all your party members, so you need either
    Shield -> Great Blessing, or Water -> Kindness Drops for this battle. And you
    will probably need to do it once a round, and SHOULD do it once a round. Sarah
    will attack a lot more often in this battle, then she did in previous battles.
    Her attack does around 100-200 damage to the entire party, and is water
    elemental. The Azodesses are powered up, but are still basically the same as
    before.
    
    Kill off the Azodesses first, as they are the fastest, and can silence your
    entire party, cutting off your healing. Kill them off with whatever means
    necissary. The best way to do it is by strong physical attacks, as they
    take more damage physically then magically. The Horrobeasts aren't damaged
    from Fire Magic, so use whatever means you  need to kill them. Since they
    are so slow, they are the least threat of the battle, and should be killed
    near last.
    
    As always, Sarah heals. But like I said before, she attacks more. Try to kill
    off all the enemies fast to keep her from healing them. This battle can be even
    harder thenm the Yuber battle, because the enemies target your entire party,
    not just one character, like Yuber. Keep your HP way up, and be prepared to
    die multiple times before winning this battle.
    
    The best way to actuallty defend yourself in this battle in the Mother Earth
    Rune and its immunity to magic spells for the entire party. If Hugo is your
    Water Rune character, he will be fast with the Earth  magic, so you may want
    to use him for defense if he is in your party. The immunity to spells will
    save your ass a LOT. Have a character with a good water spell, and a Flowing
    Rune so you can heal fast. Try not to use Fire magic, and work with whatever
    else you need. Be patient, it is a little bit of luck.

    Wind Rancor
    
    Fire Crystal
    
    Lightning Crystal
    
    Earth Cryatal
    
    Water Crystal
    - - - - - - - - -
    
    Alright, now THIS is a confusing battle. First off, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT
    use offensive magic! That is, until you destroy the elemental crystal of that
    power. So don't use Lightning spells until the  Lightning Crytal is destroyed.
    The Wind Rancor can attack up to 3 times a round, and can use whatever of the
    Crystals are alive to attack, or heal. Earth supports, Lightning attacks,
    Fire attacks, and Water heals.
    
    The way to finish the batle fastest is to go for the Lughtning Crystal first.
    This may seem weird, but the faster thats gone, the more you can go after the
    most annoying target: The Water Crystal. The Water Crystal is the healer,
    and can completely revive any of the other Crystals. Once you kill off the
    Lightning Crystal, then go straight for the Water Crystal. Use as strong as
    attacks that you have, and remember that you can now use Lightning spells.
    In a round or two, the Water Crystal will revive the Lightning Crystal, putting
    you back at square one. But the damage the Water Crystal recieved will still 
    exist, so you only need to kill off the Lightning Crystal again, to get to the
    Water Crystal. You should be able to kill it now if you didn't before. After
    the Water Crystal is dead, the battle becomes MUCH easier. After the Water
    Crystal is dead, you are capable of killing everything else off.
    
    Remember, don't use the elemental attack spell against the enemies unless the
    Crystal of the same element is dead, or else the spell will  be forced back
    onto your party. Keep your HP over 300 with all party  members, and heal
    with Water (Flowing, True Water) -> Kindness Drops once a round. If you
    have a character with a Shield Rune, use Great Blessing.
    
    Once the Crystals are dead, you have a much better time. The Wing Rancor can
    then only attack twice a round, (at max). Just atack with whatever you find
    necessary at this point, because he is not going to last too long.

    • 108 Stars Of Destiny
    ======================
    
    There are 108 charaacters your party uses in Suikoden 3. Each of these 
    characters has a meaning, and a job, even if that meaning was just a small 
    place in the game. 
    
    In this member list, I will note how to get the character, and I will note if 
    that member can fight or not, an assisting character can not fight. The 
    characters are done alphabetically, not by star, and whether or not you get 
    them automatically or not.
    
    Remember, on characters you have to recruit, say that you want them to join 
    you in your Homeland (Budech/Lake Castle).  
    
    ------------------------------------
    Characters that you have to Recruit:
    ------------------------------------

    pick up Melville and Elliot. Put both Melvile and Elliot in your party, and 
    then go to Great Hollow. Head into the main room of the Holow, and walk to 
    the Waterfall. A scene will play, and Alanis will automatically join you.

    side, not the Vinay del Zexay side. Talk to her, and she will be mad because

    and North Cave. You have to beat these bosses over and over until you get 
    one. To be sure you have one, make sure it is appraised. Once it is, save 
    your game in the hall of Homeland and head upstairs. Head left, and enter the 
    first door.  Place the S Statue on the largest pedestal. Now save your game 
    again, and re-enter the room.  Play his game, and win. If you do not win,

    Category: Assist

    Hortez has simply the most illogical way to recruit him. You can find him in

    directions to Beudech castle three times. He will move from Duck Village to 
    Caleria, and then from Caleria to Chisa. After telling him the right 
    directions in Chisa, go back to Duck Village and talk to him there. Tell him

    -----------------
    Landis
    -----------------
    
    Category: Fighter
    
    Landis can be one of the most annoying characters in the game to get. He is 
    found in Kaput forest. He will join you in a random battle if you have less 
    then 6 members (5 or less) in your current party.  You can find him anywhere, 
    but there is only a small chance he will come. The easiest way to get Landis

    your game before talking to him. You need to win 20,000 bucks from him in one 
    set of games. (AKA don't try until you have won the money). This can be 
    very difficult, because at times Mike will 'Cheat'. Just make sure you do not

    -----------------
    
    Category: Fighter
    
    Watari is found in Iksay village. He is to the right of the entrance. Talk

    -----------------
    
    Category: Fighter (???)

    their lives to your Homeland.  
    
    
    BIG NOTE: There are 4 extra characters that you can get in Suikoden 3. But
    these 4 characters are not found in a normal means. You have to get them by
    having 104 stars by the time of the last major battle (and the final 
    dungeon).  If you have 104 stars, you will get these 4 characters.  
    
    Another BIG NOTE:
    
    The characters in Dukes party (Duke, Gau, Elaine, and Nicholaus) can be

    THE BIRTH OF THE 27 TRUE RUNES
    
    In the beginnig, there existed only long, long darkness.
    
    Over time, darkness grew lonely. The loneliness became a heavy sorrow. Darkness
    eventually cried one tear.
    
    From the tear were born two brothers: Sword and Shield.
    
    Sword said it could cut all that exists. Shield replied that even nothing can
    stratch it.
    
    They fell into war. Their war lasted for 7 days and 7 nights.
    
    In the end, Sword breached Shield. and Shield broke Sword.
    
    Pieces of Sword rained down to make the sky. Piece of Shield rained down to
    make the earth. Thier batle flashes became stars.
    
    The 27 gems adorning Sword and Shield transformed into the 27 True Runes, and
    thus the world began it's life.

    This book contains the value of the urns and paintings that you can make.
    Actually, sometimes when fighting a monster, they will drop an item labeled
    "?figurine" or something like that. Take that item to any Appraiser and the
    Appraiser will change it to an urn. You can do the same thing with "paintings".
    The Apprasier will change them to something else. Keep in mind though that
    most figurines will turn out to be a Failure Urn while the paintings will turn
    out to be Graffiti. Some will change into other stuff but that depends on luck.
    If you want to get something good, get lots of figurines and paintings. Save
    the same. Go to the Appraiser that IS IN LAKE CASTLE. Let him change the stuff.
    Then look at this list. If it's not valueable enough, reset and try again. By
    the way, all of that stuff can be done with Statues too. Now, here's the
    list for the urns or figurines.
    
    NOTE: The figurines are placed in the order of: Lowest value....Highest value.

                                   Dunan Unif. War
                                   ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    In 450 (solar calendar), an alliance of cities known as the City-State of
    Jowston broke a ceasefire agreement without warning, and annihilated the
    Highland Youth Army. In response, Prince Luca Blight jof Highland invaded Toto
    and Ryube villages, spawning the Dunan Unification War. Jowston leaders sought
    more cooperation among cities, but were denied even as Highland killed Mayor
    Annabel and captured her city, Muse, the most important of the Jowston cities.
    South Window City fell nex. Total Highland victory was certain until the
    remnants of the State Army joined with mercenaries at North Window Castle to
    organize a new resistance movement against Prince Blight. These new allied
    forces were led by the son of the hero Genkaku, who had saved Jowston in the
    past. The new allied forces endured Highland attacks and succeeded in rescuing
    Grenhill City Mayor Teresa Wisemail. After Matilda Knightdom dismissed a
    request for military help; half of it's knights defected to join the new allied
    forces. With their numbers augumented, they launched a challenge against
    Highland, which was now completely controlled by Luca Blight as emperor, due
    to the sudden death of his father, Agares. Despite Highland's numerical
    superiority, it's army was unable to deliver a decisive blow against alllies
    led by Shu, a clever tactician. Emperor Blight chose to sneak attack the heart
    of the allied forces. The plan was discovered in advance, however, and the
    allied forces waited patiently for Blight's ambush. Under a full moon, the
    slaughter was reversed, with the attackers not even realizing they'd be
    surrounded. Emperor Luca's death passed the throne to Princess Jilia's husband
    of 17 years, Jowy Blight. Inspiried by the ambush, the allied forces liberated
    Tinto City and Greenhill City. They went on to captire the Matilda Knightdom's
    stronghold, Rockaxe Castle, and then turned their attention to the Highland
    imperial capital, L'Renobille. Nearly everyone defending the capital died.
    Emperor Jowy Blight was last seen during the torching of the city. The
    Highland Kingdom was no more, and the royal Blight family legacy came to an
    end.

    FORAGE BEFORE FORGING: HAMMERS
    
    Once you recruit Peggi, you can build up your weapons to a whopping level of
    16. But, you can't do that until you collect the 4 hammers. Each hammer enables
    you to build it up to a certain level. Here's what each hammer does...
    
    Iron Hammer - Level 9
    Copper Hammer - Level 12
    Silver Hammer - Level 15
    Golden Hammer - Level 16
    
    Now, since you know that, you might want to know where they are...
    
    - Iron Hammer -
    The basic tool for forging weapons up through level 9. Sometimes found in the
    Great Hollow.
    
    - Copper Hammer -
    A quality design for forging up through Level 12. Spotted in Caleria. But what
    hasn't been spotted in Caleria at one time or another?
    
    - Silver Hammer -
    A real beauty. Makes forging a pleasure. Can eventually bring a dull blade up
    to Level 15.
    
    - Golden Hammer -
    Level 16 forges? Go for Gold! When you need the very best, look no further, um,
    actually, no one knows. Iskay?
    
    That concludes the book about forging hammers. Gourmet Adeventurer is the next
    book.
